10w30 will be fine. it may make mileage go down just a bit, but it will be ok. then next oil change, if you feel like it, you can always go back to the recommended 5w30(which is basically for gas mileage anyway).hope this helps!

5w30 or 5w20 is recommended, they are thinner so they get into all the little areas of the motor and lubricate better, but if you're using 10w0 synthetic it will be fine, just suggest going back to a lighter oil next time.
