Default Engine oil changes coming.

There are also efforts to add two new low viscosity grades to the list of those currently covered by North American specs. At the June 29, 2022 Lubricant Standards Group meeting, API’s Jeff Harmening made a formal request to add SAE 0W-08 and 0W-12 to the ILSAC GF-6 list of available viscosity grades.

“It appears that some OEMs are already using SAE 0W-08 and 0W-12 as part of other industry specifications like JASO GLV 1,” he said. “API should proactively prepare to allow these grades as part of EOLCS [the Engine Oil Licensing and Certification System], therefore we are asking the Lubricant Group to consider this request.”
