    Winter oil 5w40 or 5w60?

    nah I blame old glow plugs and maybe 10w40 perhaps? I am worried about thin oil 30, should not it be 40? So is it true that thinner the oil the quicker engine dies? Is that a conspiracy of the government and manufactures + liberal environmentalists to make us pollute less but at the expense of our wallets? I ve googled and saw people are pouring in 0w20 to hondas and toyotas and alike at the same time seems like thinner the oil is the less abrasion occurs? I am confused

    I think 0w is too extreme and expensive to get 5w30 should be enough even for European part of Russia 5w lubes up pistons just as well as 0w at start correct? assuming temperature is above -30C, they have the same lubricating properties at cold start? how come 5w40 is not qualified by BMW for LL-04? https://pigu.lt/lt/auto-prekes/automobiliniai-tepalai/variklines-alyvos/mannol-alyva-diesel-turbo-5w-40-5l?id=6850566&mid=1258577 Description: Mannol oil Diesel Turbo 5W-40, 5L Mannol Diesel Turbo is a fully synthetic engine oil designed for use all year round.
