I had used 5W20 regular oil last time and said to switch over to synthetic and they said to up the weight to 5W30 with the synthetic and it would perform well and it would be able to handle the abuse I put on my car.

my bro was a motor oil distributor back in asia and i helped him in a couple of trade shows... learned a lot abt oil during my stint there...


synthetic oil burns faster, but more protection... mineral is good as long as you change ur oil regularly..... and yes, the weight of the oil matters a lot too... for older engines, u want a heavier oil.. why? older engines have lil holes here and there in the engine components..... those lil holes causes loss of compression if not taken care of... thicker/heavier oil can fill in those holes and maintain the compression, while lighter oil cannot do tht...hope tht clarifies stuff abt oil

for winter or summer use, u just need to look at the first digit, which in ur case here is 5.... either 5 or 0 will do... i think 5 has a freezing point of -20F or something like tht.... unless if u're staying in alaska or somewhere really cold (like -50F), 5 should be ok
