    Since you live in western PA, go with the standard 5W-30 as the owners manual recommends.

    Stick with 5w-30. But you also get away with 0w-30 if you really need to. 0w-20 is for the 4 cylinders.

    Yeah the 0w20 runs great in my 4 banger! But i donno about in that beast of a v6! 5w30 sounds about right.

    But then again I run 75w90 in my bimmer. :thumbsup:
