Did you know that oil that thin will burn up with virtually no smoke coming thru the exhaust? (Ask me how I know.)

There have been multiple studies done by VW, Ford, etc that show that running 5w-20 in a car vs 5w-30 or 5w-40 can shorten engine life by 20% or more.
I've always used 5-30. I think maybe a handful of times I've used 5-20

Jordan quit being a dick to everyone

Welcome to Kevin logic.

I'll stick to the OE suggestion or the 0W-20 that I am running (when I run the car)
