Hybrid civic 0w20 oil choices


#1

Hi, is it o.k. to use 5w20 oil instead of 0w20 oil in honda civic hybrids? Does it depend on the climate where one lives?

Take a look in your owners manual. It should list which oil you can use.


#3

Use only the type and weight of oil recommended in your owner’s manual and change it regularly.

When we reached 120k miles on our 1987 Civic, I asked our favorite mechanic how long we could expect the car to last. He replied that the earliest he had ever seen a Civic engine fail was 180k miles and its owners changed the oil once a year if they remembered to. With 20 more years of engineering development by Honda and proper maintenance by your part, your Civic should last far longer.
