Just wondering bc I use the OW-30 but i read that it is good to use in cooler climates and I live in Florida. The warm weather is about to start showing up again and I'm about to hit 70k so I'm wondering what everyone thinks I should use.
Thanks

I have heard great things about royal purple...what about this? http://www.urotuning.com/shop/....html

x2- Royal Purple is very good stuff. keep in mind that everyone has their favorite though.
as long as you stick to FULL SYNTHETIC oil, you shouldn't have any problems.

That's all I have ever used but should i keep using it in the hot parts of the year down here?

If anything the 0w-40 will be more efficient than the 0w-30 in warmer weather. Keep in mind the 'W' in multi-viscosity oils stand for Winter grade oil (or cold start viscosity) and is not a direct representation of weight, even though the term is misused very commonly. The last number set is high-temperature viscosity and represents how easily an oil pours at higher temperatures. Viscosity is rated on a scaled of 0 to 50, 0 being easier to pour, where 50 doesn't pour as easily, with a more honey like characteristic.
That said, I run 0w-40 Mobil 1 year-round.
