You may calculate the viscosity of the oil at various temperatures based on ASTM D341. This uses the two sets of calibration data that we already have in order to calculate the viscosity at any temperature. You may input multiple temperatures at once, seperated by comma.

Re: MAGNATEC 10W-40 A3/B3

Ehtesham,

Unless Castrol has recently updated (or until it updates) specs of its Magnatec, ZIC A+ seems superior to Castrol in terms of its API, ACEA and MB specifications. Consider this: SM/CF vs SL/CF, MB 229.31 vs 229.1.

According to the ASTM viscosity chart ZIC A+ seems to be perform slightly better in Cold. But in hot climates they are about the same.

I hope this helps
