Have a honda fit 2009 slow leak current valvoline full synthetic high mileage used only a half quart in 5000 miles when on mobil 5w-20 ep it used 1.5 quarts.

And a 2008 Odyssey, valvoline 5w-20 advanced synth. Used a quarter of a quart in 5000 miles.

I had some fuel dilution issues on the odyssey hence the short change intervals.

I like trying new things and pretty much all the oils now in days are great so I bought magnatec 0w-20 and quaker state ultimate durability 5w-20 thinking that I would put the castrol in my fit and the durability in my odyssey but then I thought it might be fun to see what you all think since there isn't a right or wrong answer.

Oil filter on both is the mobil 110a and is working well.

Currently have magnatec 5w-30 my 1997 crown and loving it.

Look forward to the discussion. Thanks

I just put Magnatec 5w20 in my mom's 2011 Fit 1.5L and the engine seems a tad bit quieter. I just bought it because it was cheap on Amazon, but it seems to be working pretty well.

Why not keep using Valvoline full synthetic high mileage? You said it cut back your usage from 1.5 quarts to only a half quart in 5000 miles, if that is really true that is some amazing results!

If they were my cars I would put the Magnatec in the odyssey and the Quaker state 5w20 in the fit since it seems to be loosing a bit more oil. I own a 2003 fit with the L13A and that engine is really easy on oil.

Hondas don't seem to be picky on oil - you can go either way. I like SOPUS(QS or Pennzoil) in Hondas myself.

The VCM will hurt you more on the Ody, I'd get a VCMuzzler if the damage hasn't been done yet. The best thing you can do for a Honda are regular(ish) valve adjustments. Every 30K for pre-2000s models, 100K on post-2000 and V6 models.

The truth is after three years of having a ton of physical issues I haven't been able to do my own oil changes. Now that I can do them again I'm just experimenting and having fun. I've run pennzoil ultra and normal platinum in both some time in the past. I'll probably do another run of valvoline high mileage fs after this oil change.

Where did you get your vcmuzzler? And why are valve adjustments so important? I do them but I don't understand their significance..
