    Caltex Havoline Formula 10W30 SM and Total Quartz 9000 5W30 SN belongs to two different classes for Mobil Oils....
    Total Quartz is comparable to Caltex Full Synthetic 5W30 and Zic A+(All three are SN grade Fully Synthetic oils).... 10W30 Havoline(API SM) is Mineral based oil....far inferior to what you are using currently and Total Quartz 9000 (5W30)....

    Both Total and Zic are good. Go for which ever satisfies you...btw i wont recomend Zic 0W...it is very thin oil...not very suitable for hot environments .... you should go for Zic XQ 5W30 instead of Zic 0W 0W30

    Amazing, Caltex has never promoted this oil (Caltex Full Synthetic 5W30) but 5W40, on media, papers, spec on their website and oil is available ?

    Ture..it wont make difference when both are at 100'C..but when 0W30 oil's viscosity will be plotted on graph against temp...slope of graph would be more steep as compared to 5W30 and generally at every point 5W30 would be thicker than 0W30 untill 100'C is obtained where their viscosties would be equal....
