FWIW-This is the 'remake' of the old Gander Mountain in this area. I stopped in and was surprised to see several of the Aquila .22 subsonic products as well as the CCI. I use them for quiet pest control and such not always to be found.

3,000 miles and 6 months. I settled on a B5 biodiesel blend. Drives are short here in Hawaii, generally 5 miles each way.

Keep in mind that these Civic's have V-Tec engines that do in fact require a thinner oil than a 40 wgt. If a 40 wgt is allowed in the OM fine but IIRC they require 5W20 from when new. Just an FYI!

Most OPE engines that I've owned all burned oil between oil dumps. Some were just better than others. This particular HONDA engine on my mower is probably the best I've owned in terms of many things, not just the fact that it burns waaaaay less oil.
