http://www.mobil1.com/index.jsp Mobil updated there site a bit. About time. Geeez. [Roll Eyes] Looks like the 0w-20 just barely meets the HT/HS of 2.6. Not too good. But as I always say, there is more to an oil other then specs. **Whats this about? " In addition, Mobil 1 0W-20 offers fuel economy benefits and superior cleaning power compared to 5W-30 and 10W-30 motor oils." Also, why would this be good for high reving 4cylinders?

I read that some vehicle manufacturer's have TSB's for customer complaints of valve knock...the fix is to replace oil with M-1 0-20 and then run at 5k rpm for 10 minutes and then replace with regular oil. I think it's the WD-40-like viscosity that's responsible for the "cleaning" effect seen.

Whoa!!! Did you all see the new cst @ 100 for the 0w-20. It has gone from 9.0 down to 8.4!!!! I can already see the new oil Mobil 1 0w-10, fast lube on startup, no lube once warm. Cary

And this is what oil Honda USA is specifically recommending for their new engines. No thanks! I'll be going with Neo's 0w-5.
