5w30 in the winter, 10w30 in the summer - unless you have serious oil burning going on.

USE 5W30. ALSO, you will notice better gas mileage along with a smoother, quieter engine.

not trying to sound like i know it all, but i go to UTI and had a presentation from a scientist from shell motor oil and he daid a safe bet is 10W30. He said 5W30 is okay but does not offer as much protection for your engine, but its not a big deal if you have a NA engine. He said for turbos to start with 15W30 and work down to see if you get any blow by.
