My Nissan owner's manual recommends 0W20 but also states that conventional 5W30 can be used to maintain the new vehicle limited warranty. I am using 0W30 in the Nissan and my Tacoma.

The way most owner's manuals are written is rather confusing and they don't clearly spell out when a severe service schedule or a normal service schedule should be followed. Often a 3,000 mile OCI is the severe service recommendation and a 10,000 mil
