What does SAE 0W-30 mean?

What does SAE 0W-30 mean?

0W-30 SAE oil is a multigrade oil, meaning that it acts as two different oil viscosity grades under different temperature settings. It acts as an SAE 0W motor oil during cold startups and SAE 30 higher viscosity oil at a higher temperature. It is primarily classified as a low viscosity winter oil.

Is SAE 0W-30 synthetic oil?

Castrol’s 0W-30 engine oils are all premium full synthetic and are typically designed for use in European performance cars requiring an ACEA specification.

Is there a difference between European oil and American oil?

One major difference between ACEA and API specifications is that European (ACEA) motor oil specifications have much tighter requirements for emissions and oil change intervals. Using the incorrect motor oil in a European vehicle could damage the engine and lead to engine failure.

What happens if I use 0w30 instead of 5w30?

A 0W-30 grade can operate at much lower temperatures than a 5W-30 as the oil will flow faster thereby protecting the engine at an earlier stage. Some engines are not suited for a 0W-30, always check your owner’s manual before adding oil to your engine.
