5w20 or 0w20 where to find??

I honestly haven't really looked for it yet, still haven't seen it. any popular store that have it, that would be where I live too, and what brand is it? I'm thinking about testing this viscosity on my honda that I have an oil pressure gauge in. I'll be testing for a few things.

with nothing else major changed mechanicaly or driving wise its average effect on gas mileage during its use.

Its effect on oil pressure.
and observe the oil level through out, to see if theres an accelerated lose of fluid, though I do have some very small leaks already..... if it just makes it worse or not.

Wal-Mart has 5w-20 Mobile One, Penzoil and I'm sure others as well. It shouldn't be hard to find.

not all are synthetic: Any auto parts store should have any weight you want.

5W-20 in the various styles (dino, blend, high-mileage blend and synthetic) and from several companies should be relatively easy to find wherever the major chains are located.

Pennzoil Platinum 0W-20 is available from NAPA if all of the stars align properly (not very likely, though), but is available from the Oil-Store.com for $27.99 before S&H, taxes, etc.

You can get amsoil any weight you want from a local dealer. The only 0w I could find was at walmart. And they promptly dropped the product after I cleaned them out. I checked all the autoparts stores around. I found a few speed shops selling royal purple but they don't tend to carry the lower weight oils.

I found an amsoil dealer a few miles from me and he had everything I needed. He also was knowledgeable about his products. I wouldn't say that amsoil is the best oil out there but it is very good and personally I like this dealer. He's a regular guy who does this part time after work. He met me at 10pm sunday night.

Don't use it unless it is in your owners manual, or on the fill cap!!

Quest001, granted that the mobil 1 fully synthetic isn't synthetic either, the 5000 isn't a full synthetic. And you got the coupon rebate didn't you? I was going to to their 5 quarts and mobil1 filter for 19.99 after rebates.
