Summer oil change

Hey guys it's time for my summer oil change and was wondering whats best for summer. Right now I'm running 5w40 extreme blue. Is that a good oil to stick with or should I try something different. Thanks

i would stick with that. however, if you wanted to change you could switch to the t5 rotella 10w30, there is an oil analysis around here somewhere and it show good results.

If you like it use it the 40 is good for summer and the 5 is good for winter you are covered on both ends. I'm running Amsoil 15w40 here in Oregon it does not get that cold to use a 5w.
