    There is no A++. Its zic A+ and it is a very good oil. But u need to first find out that which variant of honda oil was used. Honda has 5w30 and 10w30. Please ask ur previous owner or the receipts to find out

    Perfect. Now its a semi synthetic or mineral oil. But not fully synthetic. Zic A+ is fully synthetic plus it can be very thin for ur ride. Lets just start with a basic oil and then u may upgrade to thinner ones. To be on the safe side, continue using the same honda 10w30 oil or caltex havoline formula 10w30. Or if you intend to go for a better one then try shell helix hx7 5w30 semi synthetic (blue dabba). Once u feel that ur ride is performing well on hx7, then only shift to zic A+. but not now. Its a big risk

    Yes you can shift onto any brand but keep the oil grade same.Check the car's manual for recommended grade

    2- from where i can get Honda original engine oil except honda moters? because its not available in metro

    No idea.But i saw a few in saddar pindi

    3- whats should be engine running on Honda origional Oil his Log book maintained by Honda is 4000 Kms...

    ????? cannot understand

    If you afford Luiqy Moly 5W-40 then go for it.

    ZIC XQ 5w-40 Fully synthetic is too good.

    Never heard that 10w-30 oil is Semi Synthetic.
    This viscosity comes in Mineral.

    Honda engines need older grade oils like SL. Even Honda's so called original oils are old graded too. If you've ever check the seal on Honda's oil, then you will find its "Total". And Total oils old graded and cheaper in the market.

    If you drive the this Honda more like 1.5 ~ 2.5K/month, then better go for 5w-30 or 5w-40 and change them after 6K.
    But if drive less than 1k/month, then can choose better quality 10w-30 or 10w-40 mineral oil with change interval of 3~3.5K only.

    I was unsure about whether 10w30 was mineral or not. And on the other hand, I had visited a honda 3s 2 days back and all their oils are api sn now

    I have heard 10w30 is mineral oil,
    While I have seen 5w30 as fully synthetic. But do not know whether honda sells any semi synthetic oil. If yes then it might be 5w30, but can anyone confirms it.
