2011 MDX - Use Different Oil for Consumption? #4586624

Our 2011 MDX with 88k miles has had increasing consumption over the past year, seems to be relatively common in the J37 engine from what I read. It's to the point I cannot go between OCIs without adding some and I'm wondering if there's any benefit to changing viscosity or should I stick with the 0W-20 the factory suggests?

I'd try 0w-30 and see what happens with the consumption first. How much do you need to add between OCI?
