I was wondering if I should be using 5W30 instead of the recommended 5w20. I live in south florida and thought the 30w might be better in this heat. The manual states 5w20 whether it's winter in Alaska or summer in florida. I'm going to use mobil 1 extended performance with a mobil 1 oil filter. I've read that the only reason Acura advises the 20w is so they could get a better fuel rating? I just want to do what's best for the longevity of the engine. So what does everyone think; 5w20 or 5w30?
