Full Synthetic SAE 0W-20 Motor Oil provides extra protection against the harmful effects of city driving, where cars undergo higher stress due to constant stopping and going. Its low friction formula helps improve gas mileage for long engine life and helps protect against rust, corrosion, startup wear, varnish build-up, and eliminates the need for extra oil additives. It also protects against thermal breakdown which helps prevent stuck rings. Specially formulated to protect high compression gasoline direct injection engines from the occurrence of Low-Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI) and Timing Chain Wear.

WHAT IS 0W20 SYNTHETIC ENGINE OIL?
0w20 Synthetic Engine Oil is an increasingly popular viscosity grade engine oil for a variety of vehicle types. Let's discuss more about the oil weight and what factors determine if OW20 Synthetic Engine Oil is the right engine oil grade for you.
Looking at the number, 0W-20 (and engine oil grades, in general) can be confusing. Why is there a zero in the grade? Does a lower grade mean you have less protection? First, let's discuss the motor oil grading system.
Motor oil grades are defined from an industry specification known as SAE J300 (SAE = Society of Automotive Engineers). Oil flows differently at lower temperatures than higher temperatures. The flow and its resistance to movement of a fluid is known as the viscosity of the fluid and is very important in motor oil.
Motor oil viscosity is commonly measured at lower and higher temperatures. The properties of the oil at lower temperatures define the first part of the motor oil grade. In the example of a 0W-20, the “0W” part of the grade is related to the measurement of viscosity at low temperatures as defined by SAE J300 (and the “W” stands for Winter – relating it to low-temperature performance). The better the oil performs at lower temperatures, the lower the number before the W. The numbers are ranges defined by SAE J300, so zero doesn’t mean zero performance; it means the oil performs better at lower temperatures and flows easier than oils that fall in 5W, 10W, 20W, etc. ranges.
The “20” portion of the 0W-20 Engine Oil grade relates to how the oil flows through the engine at higher temperatures – like when your engine gets up to normal operating temperatures. As a reference, think of it as how your oil flows when your engine has warmed up and you are driving on a highway. Again, the lower the number, the thinner the oil is and the easier it flows around your engine. An oil that has a 20 after the W flows easier and faster than an oil with a grade that ends in 30, 40, 50, etc.
WHAT TYPE OF OIL IS A 0W-20 ENGINE OIL?
To make a 0W-20, high-quality base oils and strong additives are needed. The base oils must be able to protect and flow at very low temperatures. Typically, a large amount of synthetic oil is needed to allow the oil to flow well at these low temperatures. 0W-20 motor oils require synthetic base oils and are either full synthetic or part synthetic (synthetic blend) engine oil; 0W-20 oils are not conventional (or mineral) motor oils. And the additives must be thin enough to move well but still protect these newer advanced engines.
WHY IS 0W-20 BECOMING SUCH A POPULAR GRADE?
Currently, 5W-30 and 5W-20 are the most popular grades in the motor oil market. But in recent years, 0W-20 is the fastest-growing grade and is in a position to be the most common grade recommended by auto manufacturers in the coming years. The reason for this is due to the technical advancements of engines. Recent years have seen developments such as hybrid vehicles, cylinder deactivation, stop-start engines, direct injection (GDI), and turbochargers. All these changes are putting different stresses on the engine and as a result, on the engine oil.
Despite all this new technology, fuel economy is very important to auto manufacturers. Auto manufacturers are driving more power out of the same or smaller engines. This results in the need for thinner engine oil that is required for these vehicles. In general, auto manufacturers are requiring a 0W-20 more commonly for their newer vehicles which is the reason for the growth of the 0W-20 in the engine oil market.
