10W30 Oil Comparison

Please see our comparison of other grades of synthetic and non synthetic oils below

Oil Definition page | 0W205W30 | 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.

Synthetic Winners:

Amsoil Signature Series oil

Non Synthetic Winners:

Castrol GTX
* Note, I feel like Castrol won this category because they seem to be the only guys producing a fire point spec- I think Mobil 1000 and 2000 have a pretty comparable product here.
