5W-20 Honda Synthetic Blend Motor Oil

I was about to order some maintenance items from HandA. About 1/3 of the way down http://www.handa-accessories.com/accmaint06.html I saw this:

5W-20 Honda Synthetic Blend Motor Oil
Genuine Factory Honda 5W-20 Synthetic Blend Motor Oil, 1 quart bottle.
An all-season, synthetic blend motor oil that provides optimum engine protection. Surpasses Honda vehicle requirements to further minimize harmful engine deposits and maximize fuel economy. Meets or exceeds API certification and ILSAC GF-5 peformance requirements for gasoline engines.
Honda Genuine is the only motor oil that is tested and approved by Honda R&D.


Anybody heard about this stuff? I know there are some threads on here talking about why we should/shouldn't use synthetic. I was surprised to see a Honda labeled synthetic for 06-07 accords. The price for a case of this is very cheap (12 1-quart bottles for $29).

I've been using mobil 1 5w-30 from costco for about 20k miles but am thinking about switching up to this. Any thoughts?

There are a million oil discussions just on this forum. In normal driving and normal intervals it really doesn't matter as long as you don't put in some crazy grade or non-API oil. Anyone that tells you otherwise is full of it IMO For me it's 5W-30 high mileage dino, my mail seal leaks too bad on syn.

From what I remember, Honda uses Mobil 1, so I'm guessing it's Mobil 1 rebranded as Honda snythetic, but that's just my speculation.

I've been using Mobil 1 5w20 for 40,000+ miles now with zero issues.

I hear you dude. I've seen a ton of them. I was just curious about the "Genuine Honda" branded synthetic blend. This was the first I've seen it.

It's probably good oil if you want to stretch out your intervals. I would ask the guys at s2ki.

I was picking up some parts at a dealer last week and I saw the synthetic blend oil on the shelf, but I didn't happen to look at the details on the label. If in fact Honda oils are Mobil, then it is probably the same as Mobil Clean 7500, which is a synthetic blend.

Honda is just a brand, they dont make the oil. Some oil company out there which Honda entrusted makes the oil and Honda just puts its sticker on it.

Here's an interesting thread that will likely answer most of your questions (and maybe more!)about the Honda synthetic blend oil.

It used to be made by Mobil but not anymore - at least in the US. Maybe you should take the time to read some of the above link.
