  1. Pennzoil Synthetic - 0w20 for 2.0L

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi folks, I've been doing 7,000k mile OCI's on the wife's 2.0L motor and to be frank, I have been using Pennzoil's 0w20 synthetic because it's dirt cheap with their commonly offered rebates (probably ends up being a $15 jug for a 5L bottle). Project farm on youtube also shows it as favorable...

    CorkSport Mazda Performance
    Hey guys, Hope everyone is having a great 4th! So flashback to the 25 hour of thunder hill blog you may have read at the beginning of the year. Not only did we put some of our parts to the test during that race, we also wanted to put 0W20 to the test, and set aside any myths that 0W20 will...

    Any issues with Mobil 1? I've used it in everything else (save for a few w126 oil-burners) and haven't seen any issues.
  6. Quaker State 0W-20

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Years ago we used to joke about their oils, calling them Quaker Mistake and laughing at the fact that Richard Petty was their spokesman, but his racing team used a different brand of oil. However, times have changed and after looking at this elemental analysis of their full synthetic 0W-20, it...
  7. 0W20 with Moly vs without Moly

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Gents, I made a similar thread a little while ago, but I'll just start a new one. I need to know two (2) things about the Moly-added oil from Mazda (0000-G5-0W20-MQ); 1. Why isn't it offered in Canada? It posseses the same viscosity index as our recommended oil, but with the added bonus of...
  8. 0W20 Moly-added Mazda oil in Canada??

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hey all, So before I start, I want to let you know I go the extra 1.6 km for my car, often over-doing on the preventative maintenace department, but that's my choice. :P I know that if I stick with the current oil and oil change intervals, I'll be just fine. I know. But still. I currently do...
