Have been reading the forums for a couple of months now....GREAT STUFF!!! Only 1 problem...maybe too much info! My head is swimming at times. I have a 1996 Honda Accord with the 2.2l v-tech with 110,000 miles. Have been using your basic dino so far with 2-3000 mi oil change intervals.(recommendation is 7500) No oil consumed but I am thinking of switching over to Mobil 1 and Mobil 1 oil filter for better cold weather pumping since I do get a distinct ticking noise the first few minutes when temps. are 40 or below(very annoying). The manual states 5w30 is preferred. Is 10w30 acceptable or better now with the number of miles? You are the experts, I will go with what you say.
