|The Following User Says Thank You to Mhannis For This Useful Post:||
while i agree that 5w30 is fine to be run year round. the W standing for winter..is total bullshit. it doesnt stand for anything at all. its a random letter chosen to differentiate between what would be the low temperature rating and the high temperature rating. low temp rated as 0w, 5w, 10w. with high temp rating just being the number, 20, 30, 40, 50. etc.
the reason people call the W either "winter" or "weight" is because in most peoples heads, everything has to stand for something.
its just a W. interchangeable with any other letter or character in the english language...and others too im sure. may as well be 5#30 and it would mean the same thing.
invasion. thats not a personal pick on you at all. please dont take it that way. i just see that all the time and it drives me nuts because i know better but always see that people keeping calling it something its not. im just a W nazi i guess.
