# Is 0W-20 and 5W-20 the same?

## Is 0W-20 and 5W-20 the same?

Both 0W20 and 5W20 are low viscosity and high-quality synthetic grades that can massively optimize fuel economy. Their properties are the same when used in fair-weather temperatures. Likewise, there is little to no difference between the two versions when used in cold conditions.

## Can I use 0 20w instead of 5 20w?

The 0W or 5W refers to the pumpability in cold temperatures. Therefore, a 0W would flow more easily than a 5W and could be an acceptable substitute. Thus, it is suitable to use a SAE 0W-20 as a replacement for SAE 5W-20 application.

What is the value of log base 5?

Log Table 1 to 10 for Log Base 10

Common Logarithm to a Number (log10 x) Log Values
Log 4 0.6020
Log 5 0.6989
Log 6 0.7781
Log 7 0.8450

Can I use SAE 5w30 instead of 0W20?

If you add 5w30 to your vehicle instead of 0w20, the performance of your vehicle will not affect much. Your vehicle will continue to run smoothly and providing you comfortable rides.

### Will 5w20 hurt a 0w20 engine?

Can 5w20 be used? Yes you can use both. 0w-20 just provides better engine protection when starting up in cold cold winters. You should use what’s specified in the owner’s manual.

### How do you find log 5 without a calculator?

Answer: The value of log 5 is 0.6990 The easiest and fastest way to calculate the value of log 5 is with the help of a logarithmic table. = log 10 – log 2 (Since, log(A/B) = log A – log B)

What is log 2 to the base 5?

For example, 23 = 8 ⇒ log2 8 = 3 (the logarithm of 8 to base 2 is equal to 3, because 23 = 8). Similarly, log2 64 = 6, because 26 = 64….Logarithm Values Tables.

log2(x) Notation Value
log2(5) lb(5) 2.321928
log2(6) lb(6) 2.584963
log2(7) lb(7) 2.807355
log2(8) lb(8) 3

What is the difference between 0w20 and 5w30 oil?

0W-20 OIL. It readily means that the 0 oil will flow well and better at a cold temperature more than 5W-30 oils even while maintaining the same viscosity. The 0W-20 is said to be the best oil in the market because it helps to reduce environment hassle on waste oil disposal.

#### How long does 0w20 last?

How Often Should You Change Synthetic Oil? Standard oil change intervals are typically listed at 5,000 miles or 6 months to ensure peak performance. Toyota models that are required to use 0W-20 synthetic oil extend that interval to 10,000 miles or 12 months.

#### What kind of oil does a 0W-20 engine use?

0W-20 motor oils require synthetic base oils and are either full synthetic or part synthetic (synthetic blend) motor oil; 0W-20 oils are not conventional (or mineral) motor oils. And the additives must be thin enough to move well but still protect these newer advanced engines.

What does 0W mean in motor oil grade?

The properties of the oil at lower temperatures define the first part of the motor oil grade. In the example of a 0W-20, the “0W” part of the grade is related to the measurement of viscosity at low temperatures as defined by SAE J300 (and the “W” stands for Winter – relating it to low temperature performance).

What do you need to make a 0W-20?

To make a 0W-20, high quality base oils and strong additives are needed. The base oils must be able to protect and flow at very low temperatures.

## Why do OEM manuals advise 5W-20 and 0W-30?

In these cases I suggest a switch to a different AMSOIL Signature Series oil from among the the 0W-20 (product code ASM), 5W-20 (ALM), 0W-30 (AZO) or 5W-30 (ASL). In most cases that product switch will greatly improve or resolve any oil-formulation-specific consumption problem, without being detrimental to protection or performance.
