What ambient temperatures are you experiencing?

Owners manual should have a range of viscosities for the average temps that you drive in, I have to run 20/50 in the summer which is suggested for "desert conditions", (90+*).

It really only gets used in the summer so I'll say between 65-90 temp wise.
