Anyone using GC in an I4 Accord?

Thinking about trying some GC in my 99 Accord. Currently running M1 5w30 but find the engine noisy compared to the Dino and using around 1 Liter per OCI. Was wondering do the honda's like thick (GC) or thin (M1) oil better. I will be doing a 6 day/7500 km trip in a few weeks so I don't want my MPG to suffer or the car to feel sluggish. Would I notice a dif with MPG switching over to the GC before the trip or should I just stick with the M1?

In my experiences, its best to stick to what you know works before a long trip. The GC 0w-30 is a thicker than M1 5w-30 so you might feel a bit more sluggish throttle response. As it is thicker than M1 5w-30 oil consumption may be reduced. In my 1988 Honda Accord fuel economy is excellent with GC 0w-30 and oil consumption is zero in 3000 miles. I have not run M1 5w-30 for fuel economy or oil consumption comparison.
