Do you have a goal in mind if you change the oil grade? Is there a current concern other than forum chatter stirring the pot?Hello,
I have 2009 CRV, 90k, running trouble free. I bought it 5 years ago and was recommended by mechanic to use 10W40. So I use Full synthetic from Penrite, changing oil and filter every 10k and would like to ask for opinion /advice whether it is right oil for this engine (2.4) and climate (Sydney).
I spent hours reading different opinions but cant really find the answer.
User manual is showing chart with the scale from 0W-30 to 15W-40 so I am really confused. There is no information on oil cap.
Is the vehicle a stick shift?
Are you looking for better fuel mileage or responsiveness?
Or is overall durability the ultimate goal?
if more litre/km gazoline go a bit lighter say 10W30, If HD usage and hauling stick with a heavier grade.
