Yep. Many others already have 0w16 products.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

My 2003 Cavalier got over 40mpg highway. 2.2 ecotec using 5w30 castrol high mileage. How about putting the cars on a diet, instead of trying to reduce friction in the oil?

'How about putting the cars on a diet, instead of trying to reduce friction in the oil?"

It was done long ago..
Remember the Civic? #6 in the top ten list of all time fuel efficient cars.
Never gonna get better until the petroleum industry releases control of the auto industry.

1995 Honda Civic HB

1995 Honda Civic HB VX

Combined MPG: 43

City MPG: 39

Highway MPG: 50

Cylinders: 4

Engine Size in Liters: 1.5

Transmission: Manual

Similar Models: 1992-1994

Another Honda Civic makes the list. This VX was the new HF in this fifth generation Honda Civic. The HF stands for High Fuel economy, and that is exactly what Honda wanted from this coupe, nearly a decade before hybrids were introduced. Honda has a long history of mileage, check out Honda's High Mileage Club to learn more.

I don't think Honda specs that oil in any car currently? I believe only the 2018 Camry calls for this viscosity.

CAFE has no hold on me. As a result, I will use whatever the rest of the world specs for that specific engine and it never is a 20wt and definitely won't be a 16wt oil.


13 Civic Si 2.4L- 69Kkms(43Kmi)-PP,Wix
05 LeSabre 3.8L-210Kkms(134Kmi)-PP,Wix
03 Sierra 2500 6.0L-204Kkms(127Kmi)-PP,Wix

All with mpg > EPA

Devil's advocate:

Now small cars can get that same mileage with infotainment systems and mandatory 36 airbags all over the place. Cars are safer and more efficient than they have ever been.

Cars and truck are on a diet but also being equipped with loads of extra features (because they have to) and yet are still posting great numbers overall.
