Actually its Mobil Super 10W30.

5W30 can be a bit hard to find where i'm from, because of our crazy weather (hot as hell).

I really haven't give it much thought since its the type of oil almost everybody runs overhere.

Local Yotatechs say to use 10W30, I can't really argue with that if a qualified tech tells me.

A friend of mine with a supercharged taco had the same questions on why was it so hard to find 5W30, he made a huge research, asked around on the taco forums and what not. They said it makes sense because of the temparatures we get its ok to use it.
