Cold weather, North of Missouri, use 5 W - 30. Warmer climates, S. Cal, Az. New Mexico or Florida, you can get by with 10 W 30, or straight 30 weight. In the summer months in the hot south states, 30 to 40 weight. Dead of winter, in N. Dakota, Minn. Iowa or N. Michigan, and Montana, winter is 5 weight or 10.
