Any API/Ilsac specd on the bottle?

rebranded Honda Green oil?

ooh, $28 a quart and still can’t find any service specs

I would say, nope, gotta wait for it like I did 0w16 on the Walmart shelf

I sure won't. You need a certain viscosity to maintain the "wedge".

Even if you had a brand new engine, you might be accelerating wear that won't be noticed for many thousands of miles. On a worn engine > 50,000 miles that might have looser clearance now, that's asking for trouble. If you want efficiency, lay off the cheeseburgers, ditch unnecessary parts, or do full underbody panels, but the cost of even a cheap underpanel will likely take years to pay for itself with fuel savings.

I’m not going to try it. I buy NAPA oil on sale in June every year. Two dollars a quart last year.0–20. Seems to work pretty good.
