    5-30. I've heard people recommend against the 0-30. Can't remember why. I think it drains out of the turbo bearing too easily. I use Mobile 1. Mileage is a point of constant debate. Some will say 200, some 20,000. I did mine at 2000.

    5w30 should be fine.

    0w30...I don't see the argument...when the oil is still hot, it's just like 5w30. In the cold freezing and below mornings, oil will get to the turbo quicker. At least that's how I see it.
