I drove an 88 Honda Civic 5-spd manual for ten years and used Mobil-1 5w-30 in the transmission the whole time (150k miles). Some say that dinos are better in the MTs, but I never had so much as a hint of shifting problems using the M1. Capacity was IIRC just under 2 qts, and I changed it annually, so it wan't like a big expense either.
