That phonecall will be a long way off...

I would follow the owner's manual advice for your area. You're in Florida - the weather is hot - go with the 20W50.

I live in Canada and I currently use Castrol Syntec 5W-50. The summer here will get hot (+35C) and occassionally it will also get cold overnight (down to zero) in the summer. So I like the wide range of the Syntec.
