Looks like Honda is pushing a new thinner grade of motor oil. I assume that the actual grade will be 0w-16, but it remains to be seen. According to the article, Honda will be using the new spec in some 2013 models. Will be interesting to see if Honda back-specs the G1 Insights for this thinner grade. :biggrin:

Thumbs Up for SAE 16 Vis Grade

Whether or not they back-spec it, I'll give it a run. I've been considering a quart of 0w10 synthetic with the rest as the standard 0w20 and running a UOA on it as I have been but with this vis 16 grade, I'm considering skipping that idea and using this grade.

Fascinating. I'll probably wait for some UOA's before I bite, but interesting none the less.
