    The owner's manual stipulates 5w-30. I'm thinking of using 0w-30 Mobil 1.
    I'm interested in knowing what, if any, might be the experience of others here.

    Hello Parklane, I am an Amsoil dealer and I can answer any questions you want concerning oil.

    Can I ask why do you want to go to 0W30?
    What part of the country do you live in?
    I personally do not recommend for Subaru's a change in viscosity unless extreme weather is involved.

    Mobil 1 is a good oil for an off the shelf synthetic. I recommend the following, Amsoil Signature Series for Subaru's that are good for 25,000 miles between changes. The filters are good for 15,000 miles. Under normal driving conditions I change mine every 15,000K or 6 months whichever comes first. I replace what the filter removed and then close it up with a new filter. I then take the oil directly from the filter and have it tested for life. I have never received back a bad oil report even after sending samples to two labs.

    Here is the oil I was talking about as well. https://www.amsoil.com/shop/by-prod...etic-motor-oil/?code=ASLQT-EA#fullDescription

    Send me a Private Message if you want more information or to talk on the phone about it.

    I hope I did not overwhelm you with info.
