Considering the fact that you're only going up by about 1 or 2 cst at 100c, the MPG should not drop much at all. In fact, you might even get better MPG going with a well built 0w30 synthetic compared to a 5w20 blend.

Either one of those should work well, or Amsoil 0w30 also. 0w20 Mobil 1 also shows excellent results in many vehicles too, so I'd consider this one too now that I think about it. There are lots of good choices in oils out there! [Smile] [ March 10, 2004, 11:23 AM: Message edited by: Patman ]

I am assuming you have a Ford. The M1 0w20 as mentioned above is a very good oil and has posted some great results in the used oil analysis section. Check it out!
