Default 10W30 full synthetic!

I would go with whichever 10W30 full synthetic you can find cheapest (name brand though). This is good anywhere that isn't EXTREMELY cold. The 5W30s will lose some of the low end (the 5 Winter part) faster because viscosity index improvers are used. I always go with 10W30 which is one of the acceptable viscosity that covers most temperatures. That said, 5W30 is probably okay, I just think 10W30 is better if you aren't in the arctic
