I need oil (0W20) for my 7th Gen Honda Accord. MM shows 15% oil life. I was planning on getting it done early next week.

I guess Walmart has the cheapest oil choices (in Canada vs Crap Tire). The ones I am looking at - I am wondering if you guys will say 'get the cheapest one' or 'flip a coin.' I looked at a few threads here:


#2 applies to me. He might be in Georgia but those oils are what I was looking at, also (although, there are 3 different M1 choices). I suppose he was going by this data?:


The other thread I skimmed through:


The previous oil I bought was Pennzoil Platium (PP?) and it's cSt 8.6? I think Honda OEM is cST 8.8. Should I care about those (specs)?

Anyway, the choices for me are (going by price/all are 0W20/Full Synthetic):
PP - $27; M1 AFE - $27; QSUD - $27; VA (Valvoline Advanced) - $27; M1 EP - $31; M1 HM - $28*

*dexos isn't displayed on the bottle - should I care? I read about what it is but I don't know if I should care or not.

Any thoughts? Recommendations? Just pick one/flip a coin?

As for filters, I am looking at Wix 57 356/Napa Gold and XG7317 ($3 more than the other ones).

Bought a 2005 Accord 2.4l, Gen 7 & K24… I think. Ran it for a couple hundred thousands miles…then bought a 2016 Accord, now have 65K on that. Here in Michigan with road salt other things get you before engine miles.
Anyways I used 0W-20 on both…however, agree with comments on this forum that 5W-30 would be fine. On my 2016 which is GDI, I do plan on switching over to 5W-30 when my 0W-20 stash runs out. I do 6 - 7.5K miles on an oil change with whatever synthetic is on sale…or better yet, clearance!

I service 3 Acura TSXs with the mighty K24. We purchased wifey's 06 in Dec 2006; it has over 200K and does not burn a drop. Once I accidently dumped in a jug of Idemitsu 0w20. Car loved it. Basically been on a steady diet of M1 5w30 and 5w20 for a couple years.

The 2 2007's I service go through a little oil. One has 85K (quickie lubes) and the other has 135K (dealer serviced). I know service these with any 5w30 full synthetic.

These engines seem to like 5K OCIs. I use a Fram Ultra 7317 for 2 services and my MityVac. Easy peasey.

7th gen takes 5W20, no? These engines are known to burn oil. 5W30 would be ideal.
Honda now recommends 0W20. I was at my local dealership and had to buy coolant and the crush washers (doing both ATF and oil changes).

5W20 is acceptable. I just decided to go with 0W20, QSUD. Purchased an XG7317 to go with it. Wish me luck. ;-)

I'd stick with the 0W20, or a 5W20 at the thickest.
Any of the $27 oils would be fine.
Is Supertech an option in Canada? If available (and if it is attractively priced,) I would even consider that.
Filter wise, I would use the Wix or the NAPA.
