Using 5 w30. I'm sure alot or R/R went int the Titan motor and the engineers think 5w30 is the best. The manual says 5w30 so that's what I use. I know their is atleast one guy that use's 0w30.
Thin is not bad, thin get's into tight little spaces where thick cannot. The concept that an oil has to be thick to be good is so not correct. Honda is an engine company 1st and foremost, do you know what's in all the new Accords? It's 5W20, yes, not even 5W30, but 5W20.Luckyontheducky said:I noticed how truly thin 5-30 is. Almost like water when it is hot!
The first number only refers to the viscocity when the oil is cold anyway though, so when it's hot it will flow at a 30 weight regardles of the W (winter) number.Luckyontheducky said:I REALLY hate to start an oil thread, but what the hell. Is everyone using the reccomended 5-30 or something thicker? While changing the oil last night I noticed how truly thin 5-30 is. Almost like water when it is hot!
