i did some reading about oil weights yesterday. Valvoline's website is pretty informative. Basically the two numbers represeant different temperature ranges for which the oil is designed for. Read up on it.

But honestly, I would stick with what Honda recommends.

There is no such oil as 10W20. Your choices are 5W20 or 0W20.

0W20 would have a slightadvantage startingin EXTREMELY cold temperatures. Other than thatyour car will never know the difference.

Check out this forum for any oil questions. These dudes are severely into oil!! They all send in their used oil to a lab to have it tested! Talk about hardcore.

LOL!

You sir are a hardcore oil fiend!

I posted on there back when I first bought my Accord because my dealership used Kendall synth/blend and I was a die hard Mobil 1 user and wasnt sure of the quality of Kendall. They assured me it was fine. Plus I learned that the Kendall was essentially the same thing as Motocraft synth blend and that was one of the best performing oils.

Great forum!
