Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

    The "special" 5W20 oil is for 2001 Fords and Hondas.

    You should be fine with either 5W30 or 10W30.

    Use the heavier of those two if the car has over 100,000 miles and/or you are in one of the hotter climates in the US (never gets below freezing and is often above 90F).
