I read a comment on a Youtube video about doing an oil change for a 2012 Honda Civic.
The recommended oil type for a '12 Civic is a 0w-20 synthetic oil. However, the youtube posted a comment saying he believes a 5w-20 synthetic oil provides more resistance to heat, as he lives in California, so it is actually a bit better than 0w-20.
Is there any truth to this claim? I'd like to know since I live in a relatively hot part of California (SoCal).
