What weight oil should I put in my 300e??

Hello board, I am having a debate with a mechanic I know, he says that 10w-30 is the weight oil that I should be putting in my car. I say 20w-50. I have read on the board that 20w-50 is ideal because of where I live. I am in Miami,Fl and it it always hot. What are the effects of using20w-50 v.s. 10w-30 in my car? Will it consume the 10w-30 oil faster?
