There's an unsettled debate about that so there's no pat answer.

I had a free oil change from my dealer looks like they over filled it to me those bulk oil fillers aren't that accurate my dealer says to wait 15000miles before changing to synthetic I think its just bs also.I did forget to put the plug back in once remembered while I was pouring waisted over a Quart before I got the plug back in.

10w30 is way too thick especially up in ME where the temperatures are low it is hard for the motor to push that through.
