please post what oil grade do you use, your car and mileage. your location

I myself use Mobil1 Synthetic 10W30 and I am located in San Francisco. From what I heard, in a warm climate like Bay Area, 10W30 is more desirable than 5W30 since you don't need the engine to heat up as fast as if i am in, let say, Minnesota which is a much cooler climate than California. Is this true? My car is 92 LS 4 door 160k+ mileage.

5W30 since day one. Mobil 1 since 15,000 mile oil change. I change the oil every 3000 miles. About 130K miles. Like new.

I use Mobil1 Synthetic 10W30 and I am located in Sacramento, but before I moved out here from Baltimore I would switch to 5W30 during the cold months and 10W30 during the summer.

And NO I didn't drive my car cross country. That would be murder to the one I love. I paid $890 to have it shipped in a week.

No Doubt, I'm right off 50 about 15 minutes from Intel. My old neighbor worked there.
