    How many miles are on the motor? 5w30 is just a thinner oil, alot of people go over to 10w30 due to oil consumption and they say it quiets down the light tapping we commonly get.

    Either is fine, the viscosity when hot (100 degrees C) is the same, there is not difference other than startup and cold motor.

    I've used both and the only real difference I saw was that I would get slightly better MPG with the 5w30.
