Phillips 66 X/C Aviation Oil is an ashless dispersant, multigrade engine oil specially formulated for year-round use in aircraft piston engines. It provides distinct performance benefits compared with single-grade engine oils, including easier starting and faster oil circulation at low temperatures, reduced warm-up time, and reduced oil consumption in most engines. It maintains its film strength under high loads and at high temperatures to protect against wear and piston scuffing. The ashless dispersant formulation helps minimize the formation of engine sludge, varnish, piston deposits and combustion chamber deposits, resulting in a much cleaner engine compared with the use of straight (nondispersant) mineral oils.

X/C Aviation Oil was the first FAA-approved mineral oil-based, ashless dispersant, multiviscosity aviation engine oil. It has more than 30 years of outstanding, proven performance in a wide variety of aviation uses, including flight schools, charter and cargo airlines, acrobatic aircraft, spray planes, race planes and virtually any other general aviation application. It is available throughout the United States and is exported to other countries around the world.

Have been running oil in my Lycoming since I’ve owned it and couldn’t be happier. The occasional leak and messy belly are the trade-offs but would definitely recommend over running no oil at all. Two thumbs up.

Good oil, good price, fast shipping

Switched to Phillips since Aeroshell stopped selling oil in 12 count cases and changed their bottles. The Phillips bottles are a much better design not to mention the oil is a lot cheaper.

Its oil. It is viscous when it is supposed to be, and less viscous when its not.

I believe I ordered a single case of oil. However, two cases were shipped. Im not sure whether the extra case was a mistake taking my order, or a mistake when it was packaged. If the second case was paid for, then that is fine. Ill put it to good use. If it was shipped by mistake, please make arrangements for me to pay for it. Ive been doing business with Spruce for 20 years and this is the first time theres been an error. Stuff happens! Kim Hunter

Its sticky and makes a mess on the bottom of my airplane. They need a smart oil that turns to polished wax when it contacts painted surfaces.

Excellent oil at a reasonable price.

Q: What is the difference between the XC and XTC?

Per the supplier: We have not heard of XTC. Phillips oil does not have an XTC version, only X/C.

Q: Can I get the case price for the Phillips 66 X/C aviation oil 20W50?

You can select a case in the ordering drop down on this page. Once you make the selection, the part # and price for a case of 12 quarts will be displayed. It is also available in single quarts, a 55 gallon drum, or a case of 4 gallons.

Q: How can one read the date of manufacture from the bottle of Phillips 66 XC oil 20W50? And what is the shelf life?

For example, the code on the bottle will be formatted like this LL41A24017. To read the manufacture date, the first 5 characters are irrelevant. So, in this case, the date comes from 24017. To read it, it is the 240th day of the year 2017. If the code was LL41A00118, that would be manufactured January 1st, 2018. According to Phillips tech support, there is set shelf life for this oil as long as it is stored properly. After 5 years, they recommend the oil be retested prior to use.

Q: Does Philips 66 cross country X/C 20/50 contain cam guard?

It does not but it can be added to it.

Q: Does the Phillips 66 20w50 12-case come with that handy blue oil spout?

Yes, each 12 quart case comes with a free pour spout.
