I have a 2013 Pure and I'm trying to figure out what oil to use. The manual says 5w30 or 5w40. I'm located in Houston and it almost never goes below freezing and summers are boiling. What oil type should I use? Should I stick with the Euro formula or could I run a less viscous oil? On another note what kind of coolant should I use?

Last note...


Oil filter for the 451, first generation Smarts, is a Fram 6607 / Purolator 14612


Oil capacity is 3.7 quarts.


A Fram 7317 / Purolator 14610 also fits, and is a little longer...
Oil capacity becomes 4 quarts with the longer filter...
