I'm pretty sure the RSX-S uses 0W30.

mrchowmein 01-11-2006 11:52 AM

Wouldn't doubt if they used it in bikes. They are very high performance I mean 148hp from a 1 litre. I would say thats high performance. But then again most dealerships don't deal with bikes. I always used whatever the motorcycle dealership gave me for my bike.

thats odd...my 03 rsx-s uses 5w-30 :susp:

Some older Honda's used that as tranny fluid.

rsx-s's use 5w30, rsx base's use 5w20

to end this conversation its used in the hybrid cars. how do i know? cause i do oil changes on em. most of time we just put in 5w20 cause there isnt much of a difference.

maybe for colder weather. i know you use 20w-30 in the summer, you should switch to 10w-30 for the winter. car starts quicker and smoother...

Yeah at our dealership the Techs use it on the Hybrids like the one guy above said.
