The car calls for 0-20 semi synthetic oil. Is full synthetic 0-20 the same viscosity considering full synthetic oil naturally is less viscous than semi synthetic? Do oil companies bake that into the number or is 0-20 full synthetic less viscous than 0-20 semi and if so is it ok to run 5-20 in the summer?
Thank you
Chris

Yes you can use full or semi... either in 0W-20. 0W-20 has the same properties semi or full. No need to run 5W-20 in the summer the manual calls out 0W-20 from <-20°F to >100°F
