Well I went to my local place where I've had service done before and they did the oil/filter change to Mobil 1. However after I looked at the invoice I noticed that they have put in 5W30 instead of 5W20. I questioned the tech and he said that the computer prinout told him that either one is fine for my car. I still feel a little skeptical about it so I am asking you guys/girls out there whether that is alright or should i go back and demand the 5W20. Please help??? question.gif

THE difference between 5/20 and 5/30 is about this: >< You see that? Yep.... not much there.

Thanks Bob! I just don't understand why they would just not put in the 5W20 which is clearly stamped on the oil cap itself. sarcasitc-bow.gif

Eh, I wouldn't go quite as far as saying it's hell. I know I would never live there. It's nice to visit occasionally though. We have some family friends that live in melbourne. Theres just soo many bugs in florida, and way to hot for me all the time. Heck half the time Pa is too hot for me.

Ya, We've gone done a few times and spent a couple weeks there. My one uncle used to live over in tampa bay. Now if florida stayed 60 year round it wouldn't be too bad.

60 year round? New Mexico, in the foothills of the mountains. 60 to 75 in the day, 50 to 60 at night, with a breeze coming off the mountains. Awesome place.

If you're in the right places by the mountains, it does. You're close to the cool air coming off the mountains that still has some moisture, but no so high up that you're cold. Also, no so far out you're in the desert. I've been there, loved it.
