Default Re: What type/weight of oil do you use?

Mobil 1 10w-30. Its probably a real similar weight to conventional 5w-30 which is what my owners manual says to use.

I agree, 10w30 synthetic is similar to 5w-30 conventional, and synthetics flow much better in cold than regular oil, especially on start up...
