Dealership put 10W-30 n my \'02 ZX3

Dealership put 10W-30 n my '02 and said cuz its summer and hot.

what grade should I have in my Focus? 10W-20 is what I thougt. Something about keeping the gas milage up and steady.

I dont do any auto-x'ing and drive ;normal' if that matters.

The spec is for 5w20... But to be completely honest you probably won't even notice a difference. If it were me I'd leave it in there until the next oil change...

Of course, if it were me, the dealer wouldn't be allowed anywhere near my oil fill cap.

Ditto, and as Jibberish posted, I'd switch to 5w-20 when it starts to get COLD, and do my own oil changes from now on.
(Unless they're free at the dealer... Some dealers do special deals...)

I was using 10W30 Year round.....

Now I use 5W20 Motorcraft Synthetic blend. Only because I get 5 qts and a filter from the dealer for $13.00
