Engine Oil
« on: November 18, 2017, 12:04:38 PM »
I recently bought a 2016 Jazz 1.3 SE. What grade of oil and brands are people using. The manufacturer states Ow-20 but this is often hard to source here in Ireland. What other grades have people used and feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

I use Castrol Magnatec 5W-30 and have done in all my Honda engines and they all covered many miles (used to cover over 25,000 miles a year - my first Civic covered 190,000 miles without a spanner on the engine except for cambelt change).   You may get 0.001%  better mpg with 0W-20 but even that is debatable.

Plenty of opinions on oil on the forum just search 'engine oil'

Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

Fully synthetic 5/30 A5. As mentioned in the cars handbook. Mercedes, BMW,  and Vauxhalls also use this oil.

Any of the 0w/5W > 20W/30W synthetics will be fine.
Frequency of change is probably more beneficial than brand.

I use 0w-30 and wait for an abnormally large discount from Carparts4Less/ECP/others before I buy.. My last Purchase was 4 Liters of Castrol Edge 0w-30 in October for 29.09  from ECP..
