Anyone considering the Mobile 1 0w-30
I just read an ad for the new mobile one advanced fuel economy 0w-30. They say that it meets or exceeds all requirements of 5w-30. What do you guys think about it?

you mean this.........
If your car manufacturer recommends a SAE 5W-20 ILSAC oil (starburst), we recommend either Mobil 1 5W-20 or Mobil 1 0W-20 Advanced Fuel Economy. Mobil 1 0W-20 Advanced Fuel Economy will not void new-car warranties where an SAE 5W-20 oil is recommended. Mobil 1 0W-20 Advanced Fuel Economy can provide better fuel economy and better low temperature performance compared to higher viscosity oils.
Well i still wouldnt believe what they say about it unless somebody does use it and likes it. If you dont know wheter to use it i would try it and after one oil change i would see if you like it and if you do use it, if you like it use the oil, if you dont dont use it.

My truck recommends 5W-30, so that's what it gets. The newer Silverados (2011 and later) recommend that you use dexOS (semi-synthetic or full synthetic) from day one.

I have been running Mobil 1 0W30 for just over 2years now. I really like it. Honestly, I can't tell the difference but with it getting pretty cold here in the winter it suits me well. And I use a Wix filter. I am a big fan of all Mobil 1 fluids, as I start changing out fluids I plan on switching over to Mobil 1 in everything that it is available for.-Nick

My wifes new car will get Mobil 1 0w-20 (but thats what it calls for) when I start doing the changes (get free service for 1st 25k miles). But my other vehicles will still get 5w-30.David

Umm, 0w30, 5w30, 10w30...they are all a 30 weight at operating temperatures. I would expect a 0w30 to work in place of a 5w30...
