      ENEOS USA Inc. recently announced that ENEOS X Prime 0W-8 fully synthetic motor oil will be available in spring 2023.
      The ultra-low-viscosity 0W-8 was created in partnership with Asian OEMs, which requested the special formulation to meet stringent emissions and economy standards. Not only will ENEOS X Prime 0W-8 oil be supplied to manufacturers for factory-fill requirements, but it also it will be available for oil changes by dealer networks and for DIY maintenance.
      Applications
      ENEOS X Prime 0W-8 is 100% synthetic oil developed in partnership with Asian automakers for use in the latest hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) where 0W-8 is specified. This currently includes vehicles from Honda, Toyota, Nissan and Mitsubishi. The oil also is suitable for battery electric vehicles (BEV) fitted with thermal gasoline engines used as a range extender. A number of 2023 production vehicles will require 0W-8, including the Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit, and Nissan Dayz.
      Testing and Standards
      ENEOS extensively market-tested X Prime 0W-8 in Japan for nine years to produce this optimized formula, which provides extreme fuel efficiency with maximum engine protection, while meeting the required domestic standards, according to the company. ENEOS helped establish the JASO GLV-1 specification, creating and establishing the testing methods while performing engine-testing methods with OEM-provided test engines. ENEOS 0W-8 meets these new JASO GLV-1 standards. No API or ILSAC 0W-8 testing standards currently exist.
      Packaging
      ENEOS USA Inc. will release ENEOS X Prime 0W-8 in single 1-quart containers (part No. 3000-300). More information will be available closer to production.

      Ideally an oil drain plug should always thread in and out easily. It isn’t a structural fastener, just a plug to hold back fluid. But it can be awkward laying under a car trying to get an oil drain plug started when you feel a little resistance. Maybe it is just a piece of crud and the plug will free up in another turn. Except it doesn’t free up and now it is tight and nowhere near seated. Or just as bad the plug now turns freely but doesn’t seat. Now you have a problem. Let’s take a look at how to fix a cross threaded oil drain plug and other oil drain plug problems.

Be careful to not allow the repair tool to pass completely through the oil pan drain plug hole, stay within the threaded area. Use a new oil pan drain plug (the old one may be damaged) and thread it in gently by hand to verify the repair. How To Fix A Stripped Oil Drain Plug Hole
      The first step in how to fix stripped oil drain plugs is to not panic. Once you realize that the oil drain plug won’t tighten, immediately stop turning it. Try to reverse the drain plug out of the hole by hand. If the drain plug only spins in place but does not back out, try inserting a flat-tip screwdriver blade behind the head of the bolt and gently prying away from the pan. Turn the drain plug slowly to help the remaining threads catch on the drain hole. The plug should come out.

While it is entirely possible to repair screw threads, the cheap cost of a new drain plug isn’t worth gambling with your engine’s lifeblood.
      Oil Pan Replacement
      If all else fails then the only solution is an oil pan replacement. Depending on how your vehicle was engineered this may be an easy job requiring removing just a few oil pan bolts, or it could require removing the entire engine from the vehicle.
