I'd check with local dealer for answer to both questions.

i would probably use valvoline max life 10w30 and 50/50 mixture would be fine and as far as messing up the cat what the hell kind of hack you been talking to a dealership?

it doesn't matter in arizona because its never gonna get cold enought to matter anyway besides once they heat up there both a 30 weight anyway thats the beauty of a multiviscosity oil 10w30 will do it some good since at a hundred thousand tolerences in the bottom end and else where aren't what they quite used to be
