Default 5 w 20

Any comments on using this grade of oil? I just bought some for my Mazda as it recommends it. The oil I bought comes in a jug that is made by Ford for Ford products. I have a 2001 S80 with 115,000 miles and always used dino. Maybe I should try this 5w20. What's your opinion?bb

Well I can tell u FORD doesn't make the oil... They buy the Oil from an Oil manufacturer and sell it with a FORD label. I use 5W30 on my 850. I don't think I have ever seen 5W20 before.

5w20 Is commonly used in hondas...

I would say stick to 5w-30 or 10w-30 depending on where you live.. if you are using dino oil, its so cheap it really doesnt cost anything to buy 2 different grades of oil..
