    I've been using EuroCarParts Triple QX 0w-30 fully synthetic. I jump in and buy it when ECP have a decent sale on.

    I've thought about doing that, but the barrels don't neatly divide up by the required 6L, which rather undermines the short-term economics. And getting the oil out of the barrels must be a bit of a nuisance?

    Ah, well 5w-30 would more appropriate than the more expensive 0w-30 that the diesel needs!

    3 oil changes and 2 litres left for top ups and you can get a proper tap to screw on so no mess :Smile:

    I use 5w-40 fully synthetic Shell Helix Ultra, which costs me £22 for 5 litres of it from ECP.

    0W-30 the I-DTEC loves it.

    Have had 5W-30 in and whilst it won't do harm it is noisier on idle after a cold start.

    Fuel economy better on 0W 30 as well

    NSX gets 0-40 Mobil 1 in the 6 years of my ownership
    Civic Type-S gets Shell Helix 5-30
    CR-V gets 0-30 Castrol Edge Titanium

    Mostly deals via ECP but looking into alternative purchasing in drum form down the line to drive costs down but to be fair ECP does some great deals on the above

    Not sure what the XT gets as she is under a service plan with my dealer
