Hey wondering what kind of engine oil grade do you use for your engine? Now the manual says to use 10W-30, 5W-20 or 5W-30, depending on the temperature of the area you live in, but still just wondering what kind do you guys use on your engines?

I use synthetic 5W20 Valvoline. I am changing every 5000 miles. I live in Florida where it's already 89 degrees.

I used Mobil 1 Full Synthetic in my focus, 5W20 as well. I will be doing the oil changes at the Kia Dealer though, i am bad at keeping receipts and stuff so i would rather they keep the oil change log since it is 5,000 Miles/5 Months due to ND being harsh. -40 weather here in the winter and 100 degree days in the summer.
