    Which type of engine oil is best used for this engine?

    I have seen 0-20w then some use 5-30w or even 5-40w

    Around £20 for Petronas fully synth 0W-20

    My FR-V is on 130k miles now and I change the oil every 5k miles (using a Pela pump - easy peasy)

    Seems a very good oil - engine uses none between changes and get 34-38mpg from my 1.8 auto
