I wouldn't use straight 40w in modern automotive gasoline engines. Too thick for startup protection and flow in cold environments.

Save it for use in yard equipment and old 2 stroke Detroit Diesels.

40 wt. oil not the best idea for use with cam phasers and close tolerances of modern engines.

Are you sure turbo 400 oil is not hydraulic oil used to power hydraulic power equipment?
