    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.

    People who are going to use Shell HX7 I suggest them to use Shell helix ultra 5w-40 it is better than HX7.You can compare both on internet.

    So you are suggesting I should go for 5W30 as well? And which company?

    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?
    If ur engine is in good nick, then shifting to 10w30 should not be a problem. Leave 5w30 for this time. Try pouring 10w30 first. Caltex havoline formula 10w30 is the most used oil in 7th gen civics

    I would recommend that you try caltex havoline formula 10w30 this time.

    Shell helix hx7 5w30 is a very good oil. It is semi synthetic and good enuff for 5000 kms.

    Other available options in 5w30 are
    1. Honda fully synthetic oil 5w30 (repackaged total oil)
    2. Pso carient fully synthetic 5w30
    3. Total quartz 9000 fully synthetic 5w30

    My oil dealer is not a typical ustaad type. He is quite knowledgeable. However I remember him quoting that majority of civic owners use caltex havoline formula 10w30 or shell helix hx7 5w30

    Abuzerkhan, a fellow pakwheeler uses zic a+ 5w20 in his vti oriel prosmatic 2005. He is quite satisfied with the performance and fuel economy. I would personally recommend to use a 20 weight or 30 weight oil in civics.

    First u have to ensure that the oil is at the full mark. No more, no less. Try checking it early in the morning with cold engine. Take out the dipstick, wipe it off and then place it in again. Take out the dipstick again and check the oil level. It should be on the max mark. If it is not then top it up by pouring oil.

    To check for reduction, drive the car about 500 kms after ensuring that thr oil is full. Then again repeat the dipstick procedure. The level should be where you had left it. If there is any reduction in the dipstick level then it means that ur car is reducing oil
