Theoretically they should be about the same, since both have a "30" rating hot. But with dino juice they get the "multi-weight" ratings by starting with base oil that gives the low temp "W" rating, and then adding viscosity improving additives to get the higher hot rating. that works OK, but the additives don't hold up as well as the base oil. Main thing that means is that eventually you'll actually have 5W20, then 5W10, then straight 5W. That said, additives are pretty good now, so I wouldn't sweat it with what I would consider normal oil change intervals (3000 miles).
