Hi there,

Be carefull with the type of AC condenser oil because the AC condenser oil is a special one in the case of Honda's Hybrids. The regular Honda's use regular AC condenser oil.

If you put regular AC oil you'll ruin your AC circuit.

I've learn myself yesterday at my local Honda dealer.

Thanks for the reply but that doesn’t answer my question and I made a thread earlier this week and someone said the 2010 insight uses regular pag oil because it’s a belt driven compressor

You learned nothing. The dealer gave you the wrong information.

It is only accurate on the 06+ Civic hybrid and the other "new" Honda hybrids (2014+?)

If you had a U.S. version, then yes. I know nothing about the G2 Insight for Germany, but I would expect it to be the same.
