Was on a cruise and one of the islands either Roatan or Grand Cayman I was on a bus for well over an hour each way. I passed many fuel stations and automotive shops which all shared the same sign advertising an oil brand Puma. The picture appeared to be a Nissan 350z with a single bottle of 20w50. I find it funny in other countries how the viscosity is so different than here in the usa. In fact, the temperature felt cooler there than when I got home in Florida. Wonder how many people are dumping 20w50 in their modern sports cars over here?

I used 15W50 and 20W50 in my 300ZX most of its life. Those weights are actually spec’d in the owner’s manual as well as in the 1990-1996 Z32 fsm. I have an impeccable uoa with RP 20W50.

I'm not sure about the newest Nissan's, spec'ing 0W-20, but stateside Nissan's up until maybe 2014 listed suitable grades from 5W-30 to 10W-40.
