This is a great question. Not sure if it was answered elsewhere... Maybe @AlfaRomeoCares could shed some light on using this oil for top off whether it's before initial service or after serviceIs this oil suitable for top off prior to initial service? From what I understand there is a different oil from factory?
Also, the oil level guage is quite confusing :
Shows 2 bars below full...
I used 0w-40 for 15 years in German cars where it was one of the approved oils, with no wear issues even up into higher miles. I don't have an issue with the 0 part. Its there to get oil moving around faster when its cold. For the other 99% of the time the oil is behaving as a 30 weight.Anyone else think the 0 part of the weight is a bit scary? I remember the old timers being paranoid about 5w-20 when that started showing up. Now, we are putting 0 in...I'd love to see a wear report wit this oil one day; especially the ASTM D-4172 4-ball test.
