Deciding between these two lines for my new accord 2.0t. Either in 0w20, 5w30, or the mobil1 are 0w30. Probably stepping up to a 30. All things equal, is there any advantage either holds? Both dexos gen 2, which I want.

Thanks in advance.

Both excellent products, go with whichever you can get cheaper.

Whoever is cheaper whenever it is time to buy.

Walmart has them on regularly for $22 then they have a 10-12 rebate most of the time.

For a daily driver, you can grab any name brand oil on the cheap when they have clearances. It seems to be happening regularly with new Dexos and SN+ rated bottles coming out. Keep an eye out in october - december for clearances on oil as obscenely low prices.

I got QSUD for $8 / 5 quart jug. Some also got the $6 rebate so it was $2 / jug. Also the Idemitsu and Havoline oil grab from Advanced auto and Oreileys.

If you're not interested in rebates, Castrol Magnetec is awsome at ~$18/jug. My tacoma ran really smooth on it. It runs a little thicker than PP 5W-30 and the oil changes looked/smelled/felt no different from normal.

More than you asked for but there you go. smile

Mobil 1 and Pennzoil Platinum are solid choices. Definitely synthetic Dexos1 Gen2 for a Turbo-equipped car. As for grade (viscosity), follow the recommendations/requirements in the Owners Manual.

Both are fine oils. In the 5W-30 viscosity I believe Mobil 1 5W-30 has a higher viscosity of 11 at 100*C than the Pennzoil. The Mobil 1 5W-30 NOAK is 10.1 and the HTHS viscosity is 3.1. Not sure what the Pennzoil 5W-30 oil is with these values. Turbo and DI engine seem to shear the oil more. The higher viscosity and lower NOAK of the Mobil 1 5W-30 could help with that. My UOA's with Mobil 1 5W-30 and Motorcraft 5W-30 are posted in the UOA section of BITOG. The Motorcraft 5W-30 was the second oil with ~4275 miles on the OC and sheared the most with the less mileage.

Have a look at Castrol as well. You really cannot go wrong with any of the choices on the market these days.

You may want to consider getting oil with ACEA certification if looking for quality oil.

I buy M1 because Costco makes it easy and cost competitive. However, I happen to run into some discontinued packaging on PP 10W-30 at my local Autozone and the manager sold me 4 jugs for $35 to clear them out. The Chevy 5.3 burns less oil with PP 10W-30 vs M1 5W-30. So, yeah, either depending on price.

Either brand is fine, but you should stick with whatever you choose as changing oil chemistry every interval does more harm than good.

The military does it as frequent as the wind blows. Do you have some objective data to share that supports your statement? I switched oils quite a bit in my 2010 FX4 with no issues whatsoever--even from synthetic to conventional back to synthetic.

Most on here know my personal thoughts with regards to Mobil oils so I won't get into all the reasons for that other than to say I think Mobil oils are overrated and overpriced.

Will your engine grenade using Mobil oils, I highly doubt it, but I honestly believe many oils exist out there, including Pennzoil, my oil of choice, that are not only cheaper to purchase, but are also a better product.
