Ok folks... I´ve been wondering, and so probably have you. What kind of oil are the others running? Let´s get a little poll going. Simply follow my format.

Brand: Valvoline
Viscosity: 5w-30
Car & Engine: 1992 EGT, 1.8L
Mileage: 224,500 km
Comments: Minimal valve tap, great on normal temp days.

There... Now follow the leader. In the end, I´ll compile it all in a spreadsheet and post it for download.

Ryan, the curious one

I´m with Kenny: 100% synthetic every 5000 km. But because I think that´s overkill, I don´t care which manufacturer makes it.

Brand: Canadian Tire 100% Synthetic
Viscosity: 5w-30
Car & Engine: 1995 EGT, 1.8L
Mileage: 99,500 km
Comments: This is the cheapest synthetic I can find -- same price as Walmart (approx $24.50 Cdn for 4 litres). Smells better than regular oil when I spill it all over the exhaust flex tube.

hey remember if you´re a civic owner, you know better than anyone that each sticker you put on your car adds 4 hp.

or at least they should...since they´re SOO cool and everything.

I slapped an SVT logo on the back of my car. It goes WAY faster now.
The car seems to have more confidence.
LOL!

Brand: Been using cheap stuff, but since I´m going to be owning it longer than I had planned I´m thinking Mobil 1 is in order

Viscosity: 5w-30

Car & Engine: 1989 EGT 1.9 H0 (Gen 1 RULES)

Mileage: 130000+ miles
Damn the Metric system, I thought some of you guys were saying you had over 200000 Miles on 8 yr old cars, and I was like "Wow, That´s a lot for any car" then I saw Km and i was like "Duh, Canadiens use Metric"

Comments: Do these things ever leak?? the only oil on my oil pan is from changing the filter. The gasket is still functioning 100%. Not to mention after 3000 miles, I´m only 1/2 quart low if that, and that´s probably from wiping off the dipstick when I check it.

I use Castrol GTX (Synthetic) 10W 30, with Hyperlube racing lubricant. It makes my 1.8 DOHC purrr like a kitten!
I have 190,000 and have the performance of a new engine.

My oil pan leaks because I was driving too fast out of a steep parking lot exit once. I damaged the oil pan and a couple of exhaust heat shields.

I didn´t know that Castrol made a synthetic oil. I guess my work doesn´t sell it. I will have to go oil-hunting sometime soon.
