Any good 5w20 or 5w30; I would use semi-synthetic like Max Life or synthetic like Mobil 1

Basically what the factory called for.

Xw20 and xw30 are generally (not always) resource conserving for “better efficiency”.
I would use whichever oil doesnt burn too quickly without sacrificing too much MPG.
I generally stick to 10w30 and i think its pretty warm down here.

I recommend trying quaker state products. I had less burnoff than most other brands/formulas and good performance from these quaker products Ive used in my Toyota Camry

QS HiMi API SN 10w30
QS ultimate durability full syn 5w30

Trying Valvoline for the first time this oil change, hope its good!

yup this. If you can find some rated for diesel engines as well, it would be better yet.

Pick a 10w-30 in the thicker end, non resource conserving.
M1 HM 10w-30 is my favorite.

You could also run a straight SAE 30 in that climate
