    I am using Mobil 1 5W-30 EP right now, but when it gets colder (doesn't get extremely cold where I live) I will switch to Mobil 1 0W-30 Advanced Fuel Economy (which I have already purchased).

    My V6 starts up and runs quieter with Mobil 1 5W-30, which has the oil filter on top that drains back into crankcase.

    I use a summer weight and a winter weight oil, Since it is summer now, I answered with my summer weight.

    I am just like my car, I also have a summer and winter weight.

    Mark,
    Isn't this backwards? you are moving to a heavier oil in the cold when a lighter oil would work better....

    5w is the "old" viscosity , so if you switch to 10w xxx in the cold you are getting less "flow" during cold start-up.

    I live in very cold and switch to 0w xxx in October ....
