Oil Definition page | 0W20 | 5W30 | 10W30

 

Note: Score corresponds to the number of columns “won” by a particular oil. The more columns won the higher the score. So if 2 columns are won, than the score will be 2, if 1 column is won the score will be 1, so on and so forth. Winners are based on the highest amount of columns won thereby in my mind showing the best value.
