    Hi, sorry for starting a thread for such a basic question.....What type of oil should I used to top up my 2009 K24 manual accord?
    By that I mean what would Honda pour in during a service?

    (I have looked round the forum and can't find the info)

    Thank you very much.

    Honda recommend 0-20 but I've used 5-30 from day one and the car loves it.
    I'm trying out mobil 1 ESP at the min and the car runs sweet.I also do a oil and filter change every 6K

    Thanks for the reply, I'll pick up some 0-20 as it was a Honda garage that last serviced it.

    I'm surprised that you could not find anything about this. I've just put 'Which oil' in the search function and selected Ichiban as the 'Posted by Member' and it's thrown up pages of answers. This is the one that will be of most use.

    I'm planning to do the same. But I still have 7 liters of the 'old' oil.
