Viscosity (a fluid's resistance to flow) is rated at 0 F (represented by the number preceding the "W" [for Winter]) and at 212 F (represented by the second number in the viscosity designation). So 10W-30 oil has less viscosity when cold and hot than does 20W-50. Motor oil thins as it heats and thickens as it cools...
