Default Mobile one zero weight oil 0w-30

I have been putting mobile one zero weight oil in my 5w-30 honda accord and she has been working out fine! ;-)
This is in the f23a5 engine with 135K on the clock and she runs great. No leaks. The only side effect is that you have to check your oil every two weeks tell you see if you are using oil or staying the same. So far it's been a month nothing has happend just used a little bit of oil. It's normal for this engine to use 5w-30 and go down to low end of the stick after 3K miles about a quart of oil burnt or lost from combustion.

So... whats the point of the post really? Apart from spelling MOBIL wrong, you didnt really ask anything... If the oil is working fine (like Mobil says it would) then why post just to say so?

What was your reasoning for switching to the 0w-30? The gas savings promised?

0w-30?

Once your running of course it will be fine, the only difference is at startup with it cold. The 30 weight is identical for each after its warmed up.

Not sure why you posted it though?

Honda started putting 0w-20 in some of the cars in 2010. The accord xtour and the cr-v got it. now all of their hybrids have been using it. the new 2011 model year added all accords to the 0w-20 list.

apparently they have been testing ow-20 in vehicles in japan for some time from what the service info bulletin said.

Yes. Good plan. If I bought a brand new car and found out that my oil change was going to cost $60 because it takes 0w-20 oil I would be pissed. Unless you are driving a racecar or a car in a hostile climate MOST oil will do just fine.
