The proper viscosity helps vehicle get good cold and hot starting by reducing viscous friction and thus increasing cranking speed.

NOTE:

• When replenishing oil, it does not matter if the oil to be added is a different brand from that in the engine; however, use oil having the API standard and SAE viscosity No. designated by SUBARU.

• If vehicle is used in desert areas with very high temperatures or for other heavy duty applications, the following viscosity oils may be used:

API standard: SL or SJ

ILSAC standard: GF-3

SAE Viscosity No.: 30, 40, 10W-50, 20W-40, 20W-50
