      Without calling out individuals who gave me that info, no, I don't.

      If you search hard enough on this forum, ask enough questions, use Google, and ask the right people, you'll find the same answer.

      That still says nothing about this oil meeting the Volvo spec. How does it matter that two Castrols "are the same"? We need something available in the USA that meets our spec.

      Just put a high quality @&)*ing oil in it and drop the oil **** debate already. If you want extra then use additives, no cat ZDDP, with cat ,stick to Lucas or Amsoil, super low temps use a lower weight, constant high temps use heavy weight, racing....use what gets you results: that oil is gonna be change religiously, whatever that is.

      "High quality oil" isn't going to win a warranty debate with Volvo with the drive-e ****ter starts consuming oil

      Precisely. “If” warranty is the concern put in what Volvo recommends. If it seams shady, document it every time. Don’t gamble..why ask.. Asking what, when, why , where, type and all all the crazy numbers being thrown around is absurd. If the oil doesn’t perform the way you want, warranty issues aside, then switch. I change oil often, summer 1500-2000 miles or less depending on the dipstick.

      Yep, I read the specs and saw the differences. I'm guessing Volvo reps and Castrol are incorrect then .

      Are you doing UOA to determine that performance?

      Yeah, with my slide rule and hydrogrammometery meter. No silly. With visuals. Unlike most I check the oil at every fill up. Color and odor. Change as needed. Sometimes sooner-sometimes even sooner. Lol.

      Advantages of 0W20 over 5W30?

      Come on guys. If we all spent all damn day wondering about every single aspect of oil we’d never be out driving and using said oil. Which would make this conversation even more irrelevant. As I said before, if it’s warranty that is the issue then play the game. If you own it (car) then stick to high quality companies (no mlms or snake oil) and put in what suits your climate or driving style. If your climate swings drastically then use the 0 weight. (Which is probably why Volvo Switched in the first place A convenient one size fits all.) this whole discussion reminds me of another on here recently: what’s the best coolant. The “best” is water with water wetter agents. Tests show it (water) is the best coolant. But obviously straight water freezes so enter glycol and other (preservatives) since the manufacturer’s know that the average (look for Joe) isn’t gonna bother with replacing said fluid when they should. It’s just like the human body, no maintenance, no longevity. Pretty simply really.

      Having owned Toyota products, i would say there is a difference between them and other car makers I have owned in terms of quality/reliability. My Volvo experience has been limited to only a few months now, therefore I am not sure, although hopeful, that Volvo can achieve a comparable reliable performance.
