I am using Castrol EDGE 5W-40. Been using Castrol since I got my F30.

Anyone noticed higher temps with Pennzoil vs Castrol. I'm not sure if I'm just not recalling correctly but I feel like it sits higher in hot outside temps and sits colder in winter temps.

I vaguely recall cooler temps with Pennzoil but I wouldn't call it scientific by any means. I run both. Pennzoil has a better additive pack using a bit of Moly.

If I was running long oci, I'd use Motul Xcess since it has a similar formulation as Castrol but more additives PPM.
