Haven't reached my first change yet, but OLM seems to be counting down 10% every 1000 miles, so i'd guess it wants ~10k OCIs.
1. What kind of vehicle you have
- 2018 Civic Sport.
2. What your owner's manual says -- not just viscosity, but certifications (look for acronyms like API SM, ILSAC GF-4, etc.) and change intervals as well
- 0w-20, API certified
3. Where you live
- North AL
4. How you drive (easy? hard? fast? slow?)
- Some of everything
5. What your daily drive is like (short trips? long trips? city? highway?)
- Daily commute is about 32 miles round trip, 90% highway/interstate.
6. Whether your car has any known problems
- Have heard fuel dilution is a common issue with DI turbos.
From reading around some I've seen that M1 EP/AP are 60-70% PAO which might make them a good fit for a 0w-20 in a turbo.
Tried to do some research on the Honda brand full synthetic, couldn't really find much: Honda 0w-20 MSDS
. I'm not 100% sure what i'm looking for though.
I've also considered Motul 8100 Eco-Lite 0w-20. Maybe would like to try Redline in the future but for now am sticking with API certified oils while under warranty just in case.
Right now I'm leaning towards just getting some M1 0w-20 EP and a M1 EP filter from Walmart. Thoughts? Would Motul (or something else) offer any advantages over cheaper M1?
