What is the best SAE 30 oil?
- Honda 08207-10W30 Motor Oil.
- Valvoline VR1 Racing SAE 30 Conventional Motor Oil 1 QT, Case of 6.
- CUMMINS NW 3265339 1QT ONAN SAE 30W Oil (Quantity 4)
- BMW 83212365946 SAE 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil, 1 Quart, 16.
- Castrol 03084 EDGE 5W-30 Advanced Full Synthetic Motor Oil, 5 Quart.
Keeping this in consideration, what is equivalent to SAE 30 oil?
Obviously, SAE and ISO use two different scales to measure viscosity. SAE 10W is equivalent to ISO 32, SAE 20 is equivalent to ISO 46 and 68, and SAE 30 is equivalent to ISO 100.
Furthermore, can you use 5w30 instead of SAE 30? 5w-30 is fine to use. It has the same flow rate as SAE30 at normal operating temps. The way oil works is, the first number is flow rate at ambient temp. The second number is flow rate at operating temp of the engine.
Also to know, is SAE 30 the same as 10w30?
Nope. SAE 10W30 is an oil that has SAE 10W viscosity(thickness) at low temperatures, and SAE 30 viscosity at high temperatures. SAE 10W30 is an oil that has SAE 10W viscosity(thickness) at low temperatures, and SAE 30 viscosity at high temperatures. The W stands for 'Winter'.
What is the difference between SAE 30 and SAE 40 oil?
If a liquid has high viscosity, it means it will take a longer time to flow whereas liquids with low viscosity flow faster. The motor oil grade is usually written as follows “XW-XX”. For example: SAE 10W-30, SAE 10W-40 or SAE 30. It represents how quickly the oil will thin out at a higher temperature.
