Very informative reading mate. Ok just once question am i right in saying that a 5w-30 and a 10w-30 are the same viscosity when the engines are at operating temperature?
If so then my dads theory on oils is right go for the widest reading ie 5w-50. I often hear people saying that Mobil 1 5w-50 is too thin, but if the top number is a 50 then is no thicker or thinner than any other oil with a w50 rating.
