Being down in FLA you are better off with the 10W30.

They spec the 5W30 to improve their overall gas mileage numbers.

You are OK in the summer months using a 10-W30 will give you slightly better oil viscosity and 5-W30 is better when lower viscosity is required during the winter


You are safe

I have to put Mobil 1 in my car. Says so from the factory and even on the oil cap "mobil 1 only". But even when I had a v6, I put Mobil 1 in it when I was heavily modified. When I was more stock (like you), quaker state regular.

Honestly all Synthetics are very close in quality. I use Castrol but have used Mobil One and Havoline. I still do to the years of poor quality I still refuse to buy Quaker State.

quaker state foams up real easily.. also condenses/creates peanut-butter oil cap..

I don't like quaker state
