    Isn't 0w20 too light for oil? Shouldn't it be at least a 10w30?

    Depends upon what you're using it for. If you're thinking of putting it in your engine, look to see what your owner's manual says. Mine recommends it.

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    The clearance/tolerance in today's engines are tighter than ever before..

    start up is the biggest to oil.. too thick of a oil will damage the engine over time...

    0w 20 is fine as long as you meet the guide lines set for owners book for 0w20... I hate to break it to you 0w20 is all but normal anymore for new cars and trucks.
