Hello BITOGers,
I come due on my Mazda5 (3 drives forth-and-back over the Smokies) with 84k miles.
Cap says 5W20. Filter will be a MicroGreen MG 201

What say you should I use?

P.S.This will be a stealth change (condo), trough the tube with a vacuum pump.

Working hard over the mountains? 5w-30....it's what is recommended for the turbo versions.


I use the overseas manual to choose my oil viscosity.

Using AMSOIL

The Mazda5 is a microvan with a 2.5L 4 cyl, not turbos

Nice to see you can still get those. SOMS is on the ROPES dude. Good filter, they don't seem to get holes in them like Purolators and the side filtering it does might work well.

You are correct, perhaps I wasn't clear.....the NA 2.5 in OP's vehicle is the same 2.5 that is turbocharged in other models....those other models say 5w-30, so OP's vehicle will be fine with that grade.


The fact that the filler cap says 5w-20 and the manual indicates 0w-20 says to me that CAFE is involved.

Actually it's 484K which includes 175K on my 2007 Ford Focus which was totaled nearly 2 years ago.

Update: (kind of in the middle)
Car got 2.5 qt of 5W30 Valvoline synthetic blend max high mileage (Hooray, I just finished my 5 years old stash) and 1.75qt 5W20 Quaker State Synthetic.
The old oil took 30 minutes to pull with vacuum pump at 40-50F in garage. Later in the day 75 outside.....
So: next time when drinking coffee, warm up the car.

correction: the cap said 0W20 (as already pointed in the thread).
