Winter is here!! I'm wondering what works for you guys?
If you live in Fairbanks, stick with 5w30 for gasoline, 10w30 for diesel.
So I'm thinking like Mobil 1 5W-30 full synthetic?
5W-30 is preferred but I would recommend a 0W-30 for better cold weather starts. check out AMSOIL's Signature Series Synthetic 0W-30 Motor Oil on my website. I have tons of customers that run this year round and love the fuel milage gains they get running it.
I run 5W30 here in MN where we get into the minus 40s during the winter. I know you all plug in your vehicles up there in Alaska as we do here in MN to, which also helps with cold starts.
the 0W30 ive never heard of
M1 makes a 0W-20 and 0W-30. Listed for economy reasons. But it makes sense in extreme cold. That has been around a long time in Europe.
I wouldn't recommend such a thin weight, unless you've got a European sports car.
