    I use Mobil 1 ESP 0w-30, don't know about the Honda Diesel Oil, but Mobil 1 is good stuff!

    Support British industry and use Morris oils.

    My previous Honda dealer used them, and they have a good reputation as far as I can tell.

    New to this forum and need some advice... My Civic 2.2 diesel 2012 I-DTEC is due for servicing in months time and i was wondering what oil to buy... I've purchased Shell Helix Ultra ECT C2/C3 0W-30 last year but find it's quite expensive!

    My Civic has done 77k and I do about 10k a year...

    I was interested in Lubetech oil but not sure as I've never heard of the brand although the gallon/packaging looks very similar to original Honda engine oil!

    Any suggestions most welcome as well as any discount codes... My Mrs Civic 2010 I-CDTI is also due a service so could use the same oil if cost effective.

    Thanks in advance

    You can use the I-DTEC spec oil in the I-CTDI but not the other way round.

    Using the wrong oil in your engine will cause you DPF problems as well as EGR issues.
