My girlfriend just purchased a used 2014 Mazda CX5 with the 2.5L SkyActiv engine. What oil would be recommended? Cap and manual recommend 0W-20.

I do work at a Toyota dealer where we have the Toyota 0W-20 oil in bulk on tap. Would that be a suitable oil?

Thanks guys, just ordered a Wix filter and I'll be changing it with the Toyota oil this weekend.

SkyActiv engines have a reputation for fuel dilution of engine oil. Some here believe Mobil1 EP 0w-20, because of its 60-70% PAO content, is able to withstand fuel dilution with less permanent viscosity damage than other 0w-20s.
