Default What grade oil do you use?

There seems to be alot of debate regarding what grade of oil we should use in the S2000.

The dealers seem to put in 10w/40 however other forum members seem to use different grades.

I have some 5w/30 to put in mine however i am thinking about sticking with 10w/40 which i believe Honda is reccomending.

There is no need for debate.
The owners manual gives a guide.
You use what fits your climate.
Simple as that really

Castrol Edge 5W-40 for me and HWMBO

0-30, 5-30, 10-40 and 5-40 will all suffice. There are a few others that have been used with good results.

I use Comma SYNER-G 5W-40 FS.

I bought the car new from Fish Bros in Swindon, who advised, "after it is run in, use nothing but 5W-40 fully synthetic".

As I live in Welwyn Garden City I have used Brayley Honda for all services since the first (free) one, and when I asked them what they use they said, "5W-40 fully synthetic".
