I was checking out the Mobil1 web site and found this info:

Mobil 1 with SuperSyn 0W20 is engineered specifically for Ford, Honda and any other vehicle where a 0W-20 or 5W-20 engine oil is recommended. Mobil 1 with SuperSyn 0W-20 exceeds API SL/CF, ILSAC GF-3, and the performance requirements Ford WSS-M2C-153H specification. This full synthetic formulation provides both exceptional engine protection while providing more efficient operation as indicated by improved fuel economy or greater power when compared to more viscous products. Key features and benefits include:

Does this mean the oil is a good candidate for Mazda 3 too?
Thanks,

I am getting Mobil 1 5W-30 today if possible. The 5W-20 is only important for fuel economy, but I will let you guys know if there is any decrease in mileage when I make the switch, I think it will be a neglible difference.

I've read that 0w-20 is a direct replacement for cars recommending 5w-20. I've too heard that 5w-20 is just for fuel economy and that 5w-30 is pefectly fine and will not harm or void any manufacture warranty.
