    mga sirs...bago po ako sa forum dito...ask lng po...am planning to have my honda city type z lxi 2000mdl A/T changed oil this weekend. ask lng po..kasi sabi sa manual yung API requirements is SG, SH, & SJ. I just checked sa mga autosupplies...parang wala na po yung mga API na ito.

    whats the best oil that you could recommend for fuel efficiency? tapos anu po yung subsititute API for my honda?...salamat....

    you can go with any semi-synthetic variant at most.

    Madami naman paps puwede. Pero given the age of your car, 10w40 na API SL rating ang ideal IMO. Yung readily available is of course Shell Helix at Havoline ng Caltex.

    i'm using mobil 1 2000 10w/40 before kaso...as i checked the API of the new packing...parang wala na po yung SG, SH or SJ ata yun. so yung API SL can be a substitute for the SG, SH, & SJ?...hindi ho ba maka sira ng engine ko?....thanks po for the reply.

    Downwards compatible yung API Sx rating. So pwede yung SL sa J, H, G etc. Make sure you get yung recommended rating ng car nyo or higher

    there are motor oils in the market that have the "energy conserving" or fuel efficiency properties, usually motor oils in the Xw30 range, you can try those.

    i used to follow the 6 months or 10,000 KM (although within 6 months i dont reach 10,000KM) oil change interval when i was still using the OEM oil filter. After discovering the filter element and its internal construction i stopped using the OEM and switched to a more efficient and heavy duty filter such as Baldwin. Now i can comfortably extend my oil change interval to 10,000-12,000KM or 1 year.
