you know I've never been a proponent of not using what Honda says to use on your car... I'd rather use 0w 20 non synthetic than 5w 20 synthetic... I live in Canada and would not venture using 5w during the winter months and am not thrilled with using it at all... why wait for your engine to warm up just use the right oil..

the only difference you will notice between synthetic and on sythetic with our cars is the frequency you have to change it... are cars are not race cars and don't require "high viscosity" espeically if you are doing regular oil changes...

Having said that my next oil change will be with synthetic 0w 20 however I would not go to 5w 20 synthetic... 0w 20 will suffice and if you did see fuel changes it would be between 5w vs. 0w 0w being the better choice for fuel mileage
