0W-30 Oil. Should I switch?

Recommended Posts

My first full week of driving and I got 46.5mpg. That included some coasting down hill, but I think I can do better. So, I am looking at AMSOIL 0W-30 100% Synthetic Series 2000, http://www.amsoil.com/storefront/tso.aspx. However, this other website (which also sells oil), says "TOYOTA Echo engine which was NOT originally engineered to use the SAE 5W-20 motor oil", http://www.synlube.com/sae5w-20.htm (very last line). What do you recommend for the best MPG and engine protection?

Also, what is the recommended oil for the manual transmission?

Recomended oil for 1NZ-FE (Toyota Echo) engine:

Cold climate: 5W/30 Semi-Synthetic

Moderate climate: 5W/30 Semi-Synthetic

Hot climate: 10W/30 Semi-Synthetic

Moderate climate, alternative: 15W/40

Why do you want to put something else?

Manual tranny - Gear oil - 75W/90
