I am currently using Zic A 10W-40 in my Honda City. It is 43,000km driven till now. I have been using Zic A since it was 15,000km driven, before that I used Honda`s own oil which was 10W-30 by Total.
Recently, I have felt that the starting of my car is a little heavier. So i am looking to switch to some better brand of oil.
I was thinking of opting for Caltex Havoline 5W-30, API SM, ACEA A1 and A5, fully synthetic. (The one with the golden packing.) But I have my reservations about going for a thinner oil (5W).
I need suggestions on what to switch to for my City. For my Alto, i'll be switching to Petromin Ultra 7 for Zic Hiflo.
Is there any other, yet better option available in 10W category? I know Mobil1 and Liqui Moly are there, but they are on a rather higher side. I have seen Valvoline here, any opinions about it?
