I've done a little research myself and I"ve come up with that Mobil 1 5W-30 should be fine. The manual says to use API SH or higher. The back of the oil container says that the oil exceeds API SL and SJ.

This PDF I came across says SL and SJ is more current than SH.

So you're saying we still shouldn't be using Mobil 1 5W-30? I'm confused, heh.

I've been using Mobil 1 5W-30 since my first oil change and that was about five oil changes ago.
