That will be interesting to find out. In reality, with a full synthetic there is probably not much difference in a 0W vs. a 5W. Comparing a 0W synthetic vs. a 5W semi synthetic might be different.

The Amsoil 0W-20 is $38 for 1.25 gallons without discount and before shipping. With the preferred customer discount it's $27 before shipping. In terms of quality, I'd say Rotella and Amsoil are pretty similar. Curious what the 5 quart jug of Rotella costs in-store. Online it looks to be about $40.

Nice report! Next oil change, going to Shell Rotella 0w-20.... if I can find it here. Going from 5w-20 to 0w-20 isn't really a stretch anyway.

I use Amsoil 5w40 in my Excursion. It ran smoother and quieter than with 5w20.
