The bottom line is if you get a Used Oil Analysis (UOA) done and you find that your motor oil sheared out of grade, then you may have an idea that the formulator either (a) failed to formulate a balanced product or (b) met their cost objective buy using cheap additives and base oils.
Iíve been using an 0W-30 motor oil for quite some time now and it remains in grade even with the presence of 3% fuel dilution in the motor oil and 7,500 miles/10 months on the clock. Now thatís a stable rock solid oil!

Bump! Hm okay guys i finaly found time to do it today..but when reading the online pdf manual for the car..says 5w-30 is good till...around 60 degrees?? lol im sure i read that wrong..but here in pueblo our summers range from 80-105..so should i take it back and get 10w-30?? My shifts at work end around early afternoon..so its pretty hot by this time..my car sleeps in garage lol and i drive it..not inhumanely but..i do get on it. if this information helps..and i do wait for the car to warm before getting on it yada yada..but i also heard the thermo is goofy on this year? (2002 a4 ta) and i was wondering..well someone said they go off the oil pressure..mine sits around 40-60..pretty much. even on cold start..so iunno
