    Default 20w50 in Honda Fit Hybrid

    Hi,
    I am finalizing a deal to buy a 2011 Honda Fit Hybrid, the car is really good in terms of body, interior, engine and everything but the owner told me that he uses Kixx 20w50 oil on this car, however the User manual recommend 0w30 for all weathers. I was just curious that would 20w50 oil would have done any damage to the car, the current owner has drive probably driven this car 10,000 km in Pakistan since August 2014.

    One of the reason sellers use heavier oils in their cars is to muffle engine noises of weaker engines, but I guess this is not the case here, that person just didn't know which oil to use.

    Thanks in advance.

    kixx is the worst oil in market, do not ever put it in car, your crank would start whining on your first trip to highway

    I used 20w50 in my 98 corolla with 1.3 carby engine, since day 1 my Lancer is maintained on 5w30/40. Same goes for Prius.

    older engines were designed with more clearance and tolerances between moving parts, but these modern engines have very tight tolerances and are designed to use thinner oils. in summers it might be okay to use heavier oils, but at cold starts, I guess such high viscosity oils can damage oil pump and cause extra wear until the engine is cold. But I am not sure how much damage has already been done

    An 80's Khyber runs on 10w 40. Unless you always redline your engine and run them hard, most modern cars dont need more than 5w-20/0w-20 or 5w-30/0w30.
    However, if its a Porsche Turbo or an M5 or something similar, you are best off with 10w-60

    Bro manual of 2nzfe states 20w50 and I have no complaints hence I have nothing to do with what a 80s khyber runs on.

    I once bought a kixx oil 20w50 it had some obsolete rating SJ or SG I dont remember. These oils are not suitable for new cars.

    having 3 choices doesn't mean you should select the worst out of em.... your car, ur money man... you should warm the car good 15 minutes before taking it on a drive for prolonged engine life with that oil, the damage done to the engine from a cold start to optimal running temp is much less on a less viscous oil......

    yeah, from what I have concluded is that 5w30 fully-syn is good for almost all efi 4 cyl econo boxes. and if the engine is in good shape and you use good quality oil and air filters, you can even go beyond 10,000 km on a single oil change

    using 20w50 etc on these modern engines is ziyadti, these engines have very tight tolerances and require thinner oils that can form a strong film for maximum protection.
    In sub-zero temperatures, thick oil wouldn't circulate properly until the engine is warm enough and will cause unnecessary extra wear and tear, but I guess it's okay in hot summers when the engine doesn't start at a very low temp and the oil is still liquid, not gel.

    yes i recommend 5w30 for hybrid or small econo engine running heavier or thicker oil like 10w40 or 5w50 will harm ur fuel consumption......btw fully synthetic in US can run upto 10-15,000miles but here in Pakistan our environment is dusty so we have to be careful....max i took upto 8000km even imported Dealer like Audi/Merc recommend to change oil before 10,000km

    What if car is on cng?
    Cng runs on high temperature as compared to petrol so 20w50 is good for modern cnged engine, no?
