my owners manual says the V6 gets 5 w-20 and the 4cyl gets the
Hi, Different expert here and Mitsubishi employee.The oil tolerance changes are a bit confusing as they changed a few times in this year range. I want to clarify the situation since there seems to be some conflicting information here.
These are the actual oil requirements:2011 and up four cylinder non turbo engines - 0W20V6 engines up 2013.5 5W202014 (new model) Outlander V6 0W20There are no exceptions to that.Your 2013 (old model) Outlander V6 will take the 5W20. You will not want to use 0W20 on your engine under any circumstances, it will not provide adequate lubrication to the piston rings. 2014 models are significantly different internally which is why the change occurred.
