    So, we should all be using 0W-20 and 0W-30 in our cars. Am I wrong with this assumption? Why would they even make oils with a 5W or a 10W then if they are thicker at start up...

    Because in places where rarely see any cold temperatures it's better protection. If you wake up and it's 40c outside. The oil is already pretty "warm" up. Making it give better protection to thinner oils.

    Places like here where we get -40c weather it's better to run a thinner oil at start up.

    Some places you can even get away of running straight 50. If you try that here your pistons will look like someone tried scratching it with sand paper lol.

    I'm going to switching to 5w-40 soon after. Still burning a bit of oil..

            Found a good study the other day on SAE 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oils done earlier this year.

            OVERVIEW

            While conventional motor oil sales remain flat, synthetic motor oils continue to
            demonstrate strong annual growth. Motorists now recognize that synthetics
            legitimately improve engine performance, particularly in engines that operate
            under severe service. Performance cars and many traditional family vehicles
            today leave the factory with synthetic oil installed and recommended as the service
            fill, contributing to syntheticsí increased demand. Oil manufacturers have
            responded. Many now formulate multiple synthetic motor oils, often led by a
            flagship product that represents each companyís most advanced technology.

            Just wish they would have added Motul to their study as well. Good read either way.

                  Good read!

                  Summary: Youíve seen those slick ads for motor oils, but after you get beyond basic protection, the claims get slippery, because oil-makers donít supply independent test results to back up their boasts. And some industry seals of approval donít carry a lot of weight.
