It's ok thanks to A/C. Dont know how the Natives did it before. It's no wonder the U.S. government told them "here, have this dry death land"

In august every car has traction for days

The Explorer has pretty fresh Mobil 0W20 Extended Performance in it for the winter. And a 1-year old Walmart EverStart battery. Turned over slowly, but fired right up. Hummmmm, "pour point",......I'll have to read up on that. Thanks.

0W - you are fine. Itĺs probably -55F for that oil. Those that would use a non-approved 10 or 15w oil might be in trouble at -33F.

EDIT: Pour point is the coldest temperature that oil will pour out of a bottle! And I just looked up Mobil 1 0W-20 and pour point is -48F

Youre right, I was looking at plain old 0-20.
