I use 5w30 year round in NY weather and my car runs fine. Depending on where you live though, you may need a thicker or thinner viscosity. Where are you located?

5w30 is fine unless you have problems like leaks or burning. overseas civics almost all the engines use 10w30 recommended by honda (and usually the engines are the same or very similar).

That will answer all your oil questions. I have a feeling the book is supporting the Amsoil company. But i can be wrong.

Actually most civics overseas are recommended to run 0w20 currently, but that's almost impossible to get in North America and it's very expensive.
