    Exactly what Eggman said. The range of viscosity easily covers 5-30. Again, if you're so worried about it, stick with 0-20. I am not worried and will use what I feel is fine.

    It was intended to allow you to change your own oil, use whatever spark plugs and tires you choose, change your radio etc

    Summed up, its up too the dealership too prove what you did (or didn't do) caused The failure, in order to deny the claim. A single missing oil change receipt is enough to deny your engine claim under warrantee. That's not to say they 'will' but rather 'can' by law.

    This covers the United States market.

    Thanks! Good to know there's a range. Can't wait to drive a 17' 18' with a manual. My somewhat local dealer doesn't have a manual in a G4 right now.
