We definitely know about this thing called rain, but we're not getting any of it right now. It's going to be 90F for several days in a row, way too hot for most of us around here. Nice pics \:\!

I see there is no viscosity mentioned. Not a good sign for Q.L. places...
The oil fill cap on my car never said the recommended grade/viscosity either. Just has a Honda logo and says "Oil"

True, I think it is pretty rare. I know that some of the ford caps say 5w20, and I think my Toyota says 10w30, but that is about it.... Any quicklube should have some quick guide to requirements.

Many of the Ford caps spec a grade. Some say 5w30, others say 5w20 depending on the year.

IMHO, I really like the new Eclipse. I don't care what it's numbers are, it's a sharp looking car. Head and shoulders about my wife's first gen. She somehow thought it was below me to buy a new Eclipse but was okay with a Fit. Go figure. How have those Mitsu V-6's been on oil?

Cap says to see Owner's Manual. The manual probably lists a couple of acceptable viscosities depending on summer or winter season.

Mine is a GT 6spd. No dip stick, just an Aisin 6speed manual. I love the car. No matter what test say about it, my GT 6spd is a blast to drive, everyone love the way it looks, every girl tells me how sexy it is. Top notch. Never had any service done it accept a PCM flash recall, thats it.
