What oil is listed in owners manuals of countries where it gets very hot?
Is the oil still 0w16 or the weights are based on temperature?

I don't know the answer but I doubt that arid countries have even heard of 0W16 or 0W20.

Only the recommended lubricant should be used in the HV, ever. Same oil is recommended for all climates. FWIW the synthetic doesn't change in higher temps, it performs the same regardless. You're thinking about "oil".

Still curious what owners manual of other countries say.
