Just wondering if anyone is running 0w-30 oil instead of 5w-30.

I have run it in the past and it is good for cold start ups mainly. Once you get to operating temp, it's no different that a 5w30 oil. When the engine is cold, it does seem to rev up more quickly because the oil is thinner and allows the engine to run with less friction.

Not I. It would be good for Alaskans and Canadia.

Unless I lived in the Arctic, I'll stick with the 5W-30 myself, and we get below zero here too.
