no need just run Mobil 1 5W-30 and have better protection, and not worry with that 20 weight crap. The 20 weight stuff is called "MARKETING"

Part of that is true, the other part is to have thinner oil to get better gas mileage to look good for EPA standards....I wouldn't go with a regular 5w20, I have heard good tech specs about the 0w20 and some techs who have tested the oil were impressed, just because it's thinner doesn't mean it protects less.
