German Castrol Syntec 5W-30?

I need some clarification. I was under the impression that everyone used German Castrol Syntec 5W-30. After going to multiple Autozones I can only find 0W-30 made in Germany. Now after reading up on it more I cant find anthing out about German 5W-30.

So when people say to use German Castrol Syntec, are they reffering to the 0W30? or is there a 5W30?

Thanks

the German made 5w-30 is very hard to find and if you find it make sure to load up. Next best Oil that is very good for our VQ engine is the Mobile 0w-40. Dont be afraid of the 0W coz that is only for cold start and there is no harm on using 0w coz once it warms up then you're good to go, also the Mobile 0w-40 is more of a thin 40's.

The threads on driver were about the 0w30.... Dont worry too much about the weighting because its proven to show better viscosity at hotter and colder temps than mobil 1 5w30

You guys go to some extraordinary effort for a oil that's only marginally better. Mobil 1 is great oil and 99% of you won't even stress that. Not even close.

Every oil respond differently on different engine. Only an Oil analysis will really show how an Oil hold up on a particular engine.

Here, check this thread and they are usually based on real data and not hype.



For harder track use Mobile1 0w-40 does hold pretty well and even FI'ed cars are now trusting this oil.

Thanks guys. I think i will go with the European 0W-30. For the same price as M1, I would rather get a true synthetic. Amsoil is a little too rich for my blood at $10/qt.

The GC 0-30 is good stuff. I run M1 15-50 here in the summer because of the TT and all the Phoenix heat.
