im using mobil stuff. how there is a great difference between other branded oils i dont know! a fully synthetic oil from a different well-known brand cant really be that different!

as long as its rated by people (ie my car hasnt blown with 5w40 fully by mobil-neither with 5w30 part syn) i'm sure theres no problem!!

get fully synthetic branded oil and change it regularly!

i do 6k changes, filter and oil.

There are huge differences in oils even thou there all fully synthetic ,
its like saying all fuels of the same octane rating are the same
there are different additives etc in all
the silkolene pro s for intance if you run it and throw it away in most engines before 10k you are throwing good oil away , that statement is from a very well known oil supplier who is selling the oil so effectively he is cutting his sales by saying it but it is true.

Christ I used to run my Ek3 on 10w40 that we used to use in the tractors, came out of a 50 gallon drum ;)

I bought some cheapy 10w40 for the CRX as well. £35 for 20 litres, bargin!
