    Appreciate it man - considering I work there it’ll work out 4L and a Honda filter = same as just the M1 on sale

    Mobil 1 EP 0w20 vs new Honda (Canada) Bottled

    sorry maybe your right it’s the Gf6 formula. Any opinions on this oil vs Mobil EP 0w20 for a 5000mi change on a 1.5T 6 speed highway driven Honda Civic?

    Mobil 1 EP 0w20 vs new Honda (Canada) Bottled

    Hey all. I’ve been running Mobil 1 0w20 EP in my wife’s 17 Civic Hatch 1.5T 6 speed. I change it at 5000mi and it’s been running good. However I work for a Honda dealer in canada and we have this new Gf6 rated bottled oil. Anyone have any more information on this stuff?

    Well, having put some KM on her, I can say the engine noise at cold start (usually LS piston slap) is at least 80% quieter and when hot motor sounds much tighter and less noisy overall. Oil psi is slightly higher, and she seems happy <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile"...

    If its good enough for KITT, its good enough for me! For the cost of it to me, Its worth doing the M1 AP filter, M1 0w40 every fall the day before storage. Good protection <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" height="15" width="15" /> Thanks all!

    Changed things up after some reading. Motor seems quieter (piston slap is less when cold) and oil psi little higher. <img src="https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/attachments/usergals/2020/06/full-82932-45363-dad78d47_8b21_4251_ae95_ad0249192037.jpeg" alt="[Linked Image]" class="post-image"...

    I was debating on changing to WIX / Napa Gold and likely will. Last question, I change the oil in sept/oct before I Park her in my garage for the winter so it's fresh to sit then good for the next year. Maybe gets 5-6000 KM of driving in the season and techancially a year of being in the...

    2017 Civic HB 1.5T GDI - 6 Speed

    I agree, With her highway miles, the car would get approx : 15,000km on an oil change approx 10,000Mi - which to be is a no no on these engines. SO I always dump it and new filter at 50% - leave MM runing and do suggested maint at 15% oil life then do a reset on it. Even in dead of winter, when...

    Sounds good, so its looking like some Castrol Edge 0w20 will be going in. If Honda updates their Syn 0w20 I'll switch it back as I work here and all, but SN plus to me is a better bet in this engine.

    Thanks <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" height="15" width="15" /> I figure with the early OCI's I do, and her driving habits any oil would likely perform O.K, but I know the bottled Honda oil here is SM rated.. so I want to switch I just want to use something...
