OK, mine's a gasser so things aren't quite the same BUT...

I just recently changed to Mobil 1 0W40 and the 560 spins up fast on cold starts in zero and sub-zero temps. In fact when I changed my oil, the oil had been sitting in the trunk for several days, always parked out side with the highest temps falling in the +single digits, yet when I poured the oil into the engine it flowed faster than 10W30 semi-synthetic does in 70*f temps.
