I'd really prefer to use the 5w30 oil and I believe the 0w20 is only spec'd because Mazda's trying to pump up their CAFE fleet fuel economy numbers. I don't think 0w20 contributes that much economy to an individual vehicle maybe a couple tenths of mpg.

    It only makes a difference across a huge fleet of vehicles so it's much more important to Mazda than me. Last edited by Buddywh2; at Yep, it's specced for fuel economy and better cold protection. A majority of engine wear happens at cold start, when most of the oil has drained to be pan.

    A lower weight oil, will flow faster to those 'starved' locations to reduce engine wear. If you prefer to run 5w, that is up to you. Originally Posted by inlinev. There is no difference in engines that require some Mazda engines to use 0w20 and others to use 5w Originally Posted by Unobtanium.

    People don't much understand oil thickness, I've found. That said, Mazda says put in it, and I'll put in it.

    I prefer the thinner oil, with a good add-pack. UOA's have shown it's fine in most vehicles. Last edited by piotrek91; at The standard calculation weight for oil is 7. Gotta do that weight and balance! When cold, a 0W will flow faster than a 5W.

    The colder you get, the bigger the difference. When very cold, the oil has to let the engine "crank" first, then it has to be able to be pumped.

    Both cranking and pumping performance are measured at very cold temps to classify the XW part of the viscosity. At "operating" temp, a 30 has more resistance to flow vs a A 20 gets slightly better fuel economy, without sacrificing wear protection when its use is ok'd. Every little bit helps! Some countries may not have the latest oil viscosities available. The quality of lubes may vary more as well.

    A historically more common thicker viscosity oil may be a available, and b provide more of a safety factor if an oil blender cuts corners.

    The problem with 20 is in very hot weather the oil will get a little too thin and doesn't meet the OEM specs High Temperature Shearing for proper engine protection as you live closer to the Equator like Mexico, therefore 30 weight is recommended. Don't jump all over me because I used Amsoil just as a comparison for a wide range of oil grades on one chart.
