Motor oil is made from crude oil and is used to lubricate, clean, and cool engines. Types of motor oil include conventional, synthetic, diesel, bio-based, hybrid (blends of conventional and synthetic), and recycled oils. Motor oil varies in weight and viscosity, as well as additives that some manufacturers add to the oil during the refining process. A numerical code system created by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) grades motor oils according to viscosity--the higher the number between 0 and 60, the more viscous (thicker) the oil is. Most consumer motor oils are graded by two numbers, with the first number indicating cold weather (Winter or "W") performance.
This oil has a weight of SAE 0W-40, meaning it has an SAE viscosity rating of 0 in cold temperatures and a rating of 40 at normal operating temperature. Always check your vehicle's owner's manual to verify that this is the correct weight of motor oil for your vehicle.
Full Synthetic Oil
This oil is a full synthetic oil, meaning crude oil is not used in making it. Synthetic oil can be used in vehicle engines instead of motor oils refined from crude oil, and often provides superior mechanical performance over traditional motor oil, including increased gas mileage and reduced engine wear at extreme temperatures. Its complex method of production means it can often cost more than conventional motor oil.
More to consider from our brands

When used instead of a 5W30 oil in two 2002/2003 VWs, in moderately cool but not cold temps, noticed easier starting and generally fine performance.
At the Amazon price, especially with prime, there is no more affordable way to get this quality of oil.
Two alternatives to consider for Porsches:
If you are racing a street car, or observing much reduced change intervals, consider Joe Gibbs DT40 or similar, though it does cost even more than this Mobil 1 choice.
Another approved and worthy choice for Porsches and other European performance cars is Motul 8100 x-cess 5W40, and this is also sometimes available via Amazon as well as in 5 liter package.
In most all cases, the Mobil 1 0w-40 is excellent, but I still prefer the Pennzoil PureBase made with a gas-to-liquid process, meaning no crude oil to refine... a truly "synthetic" process. Still the Mobil 1 is meets spec for our new VW, so I'm using it in my car and keeping the receipts for the VW, which gets PZ Platinum PureBase since it's brand new. Mobil 1 0w-40 in jugs certainly makes using spec oil easy. It's not just for Euro cars which call for a thicker oil, it's a great choice for many modded engines from a Civic to a Mustang etc.
See, the extra thickness of a Euro spec oil is intended as a buffer for drivers going flat out on the Autobahn for hours at a time. We simply don't have those driving conditions in the USA, which would overheat the oil....short of towing, etc. So most drivers of Euro cars can go around with good 5w-30 just fine, I use it in winter because it's thinner in cold, and the 0w-40 in summer. Not a big fan of the regular Mobil 1 oil, but the High-Miles formula is Excellent for Euro cars. Slightly thicker and extra additives to help with our poor fuel quality in USA....alcohol and sulphur. Low additive formulas like Mobil 1 ESP for VW 504 work poorly with our fuels, and are made for Euro quality fuels. VW 504/507 is fine for TDI, just for the record. 504 cannot be back-speced to VW 502, although it is claimed. 502 is simply a weak old spec, that newer oils blow away. Really 5w-40 is obsolete for many applications as well, in cold forget it. That dealer Syntec 5w-40 VW 502 is crap, and old high magnesium formula for diesel engines.
Still, I use PZ Platinum 5w-30 without specs, also the Viper spec 0w-40 that is a little different than the PZ Euro 0w-40....those specs just add to the cost....$500k for 3yr licence to sell VW spec oil. Yeah, I swap winter and summer oil...but with 0w-40 you really don't have to outside of Arctic conditions. If the cold is that bad, might want to jump down to 0w-20 anyway.
I let the first 2500 miles to go on the original oil. Just had the oil changed at the dealer and as always, this oil will never fails... you can feel the smooth engine sound and smoother engine grip. I have a manual so revving the engine in gears i can clearly hear a difference.
And by the way, this is the same oil that goes into my A4 for that past 5 years (5 oil changes). just buy it and never look back.
