    Default Which PSO motor oil to use in Civic EXI

    I have a Civic EXI Prosmetic with 130000km on it and it does not decrease oil... I presently use 20W-50... I want to ask which engine oil is better from the following oils:
    SAE 20W-50 API SG/CD (Carient Plus)
    SAE 10W-40 API SM (Carient Ultra synthetic formula)
    SAE 5w-30 API SN (Carient Fully Synthetic)

    Go with the lowest viscosity, i.e. 5w 30. It will provide lower wear and tear on cold starting, and better fuel economy. Use it all year round with 8000 km / 6 months drain intervals; use genuine Honda oil filter only.

    The thickest oil recommended by the owners manual of seventh gen civic was 15w40. 20w50 is very thick for a civic. Since u had been using a car on mineral oil for such a long time, I would suggest that do not shift to synthetic or semi synthetic instantly. You may go for any 10w40 mineral (non synthetic) or caltex havoline formula 10w30 which is also a mineral oil

    Sir mere saath abhi banda betha hai , 6 years se carient daal raha hai apni cultus men, mjhe bolta hai oil black nae hota mera
    Although am telling him oil black hona achi baat hoti hai

    PSO and shell have the same base oil in their lubes. Only the additives are different, 19/20 fark hoga bus.
    And PSO's synthetic range is quite good

    But your argument about the oil turning black is wrong.
    As the moden oils have cleaning detergents in them, so the oil should turn black in my opinion.
    I ve seen cars with black oil after like 300-500 km of travel after a fresh oil change.
    So PSO ka oil bura nae hai Its like nike vs addidas

    Poster, if you are really into using pso for your exi then you may opt for just one variant I.e. pso carient ultra 10w40. The others are not intended for your car. The 20w50 is very thick for a civic and will ruin your fuel economy. And the fully synthetic one is intended for new vehicles. Ur car is MA se 130000 kms driven so dont use fully synthetic. It may cause leaks. Its a precious ride and u need to take care of it
