    both are not really good, it would be better to stick to honda's own 5w-30 oil, you can use these oils for max of 5k with factory oil filter

    yeah from the above two choices poster has given honda oil would still be good, your suggestion is better, though if it was my car i would be looking towards liqui moly

    No doubt liqui moly is the best but in our dusty hot environment i wuld personally choose and recommend to get 5w30 total imported or honda oil with original oil filter and get it changed by max 5000kms..there is no real benifit of extended drain intervals in our environment coz of the dust and the crappy oil filters..just my 2 cents

    API-SN is the latest oil ratings plus ive heard imported total is ILSAC-GF5 approved too and is the recommended grade too for honda civic(r18) and honda city..im currently using caltex 5w40 fully synthetic and ive noticed sluggish pickup coz its a bit thicker than 5w30..will get it changed to imported total once its done 5000kms:-)

    Yes most imported oils are ILSAC-GF5 certified
    And do give your opinion when you change back to 5W-30 and see if you feel a noticeable difference in response
    I would think it will not be due to viscosity as weight is same that is 5W
    But due to the fact that havoline is a inferior oil with inferior addict ivies
    And frankly no problem in extended drain intervals upto 7-10000km depending on oil like Liqui moly mobil 1/ these oils can go upto 15000km/15000miles in some cases like Mobil 1 so we are still on the safe side, it's just a myth created to fool people in more regular oil changes and more money
    Engine oil is sealed inside engine and if you take care of airfilter no worry about dust
    In countries such as Dubai and even some America states they have much much more dust and they use evenore extended drain intervals
    Plus if you use oem japan/Thailand oil filters then no issue as well as these same filters will be used in other countries as well
    Infact the owners manual of any Altis even says to
    Change oil at 6 months or 10000km and reccomends API SN

    5w is the cold crank viscosity and 40 is the operating temp viscosity so 40 is indeed thicker than 30 at operating temp of the car..i felt an immediate heaviness in my car as soon as i left the oil change shop..5w30 is the recommended grade for honda engines i wuld say and stresd upon it again dnt go for 5w40(caltex) or 5w20(zic a+)
