    Default Best Mobil Oil for 7th Gen Civic(after Caltex Havoline is gone)

    Hi,

    As many of you have already heard that Caltex is shutting down its operation in Pakistan. Few days ago, I went to the same Caltex pump where I have been going for quite a few years for both fuel and mobil oil. They had total mobil oil at the pump. Upon inquiring why there are no caltex mobi oils, the guy said that Caltex is bought by Total and soon the logo will be replaced too.

    I just want to confirm is the news true? If it is true, what is the next best mobil oil for 7th gen civic? I have been using havoline formula 20w50 after every 4000km.

    Havoline Formula is 10W30 and Havoline motor oil is 20W50. BTW why using 20W50 go for 10W30 or 5W30 if your car aint reducing oil or smoking, Hondas do good with 30

    I am not sure about oil viscosities but since the day I bought this after it was driven 100k, I have been using that red bottle havoline (i think it is 20w50 but not sure exactly).
    The car is currently driven 114,200 something and my next oil change is around 116,000

    Use Total 10W30 that pump will have it and drain it at 4000kms else i used Shell Helix HX7 5W30 in 2005 vti oriel without any issues and drained it at 5k. A friend has 05 exi it has clocked 395000kms and he was using castrol 10w40 from first day and car drives like a champ

    I would die if my car smokes. But I am not sure if the oil is being reduced or not.

    ahmedraja is suggesting to go for 30. Do you guys think it would be good if I switch from 20W50 directly to 10W30 or 5W30?

    Yes I totally agree that it is wise to use low viscosity oil in your honda civic. I have a civic exi 2006 and I bought it second hand. Firstly, I was advised by the mechanic to use havoline 20W/50. Then after few months I myself switched to havoline 10W/30 and recently I decided to switch to Shell Helix 5W/30 and I was completely amazed that how my car become so light and it is now nearly 5 months since I changed the oil and not a single drop of oil is decreased. Most importantly my car fuel consumption is noticed to be improved. With Shell Helix 5W/30 I made a trip to Murree from Lahore and back and simply amazed that there has been no decrease of oil level and my car did 15 KM per liter with A/C. My true advise for all honda car lovers to simply shake off your fears and go for lighter oils 5W/30 or 0W/20 or 0W/30. Our mechanics are old set minded people and do not have latest knowledge. New research says that lighter oils are more capable to circulate around engine parts more efficiently and also absorb heat of engine quickly, which thick oils can't. Lighter oils also clean up the engine parts much better and lastly these are long drain.

    Hi bro that is a nice to hear that you have changed the engine of your car. However, 143000 KM is nothing against the hi tech and robust honda engine. If it is treated well the honda engine can live up to 400000 KM. Just remember to use light engine oil like Shell Helix HX7 5W/30 or even more lighter oil, it is good for your car.
