I haven't had to top up or anything yet but have bought some castrol edge 0w-30

like tom said, seems that a few garages say to use that

Honda use the old version of castrol edge from like 1990s lol

the old models seemed to have any issue with the oil, so not sure if it has been resolved

also dont know if you drive hard makes the oil go down further

Castrol Edge 0w 30 all day long mate.
When I first got the car the car used to burn oil all the time. Then after my first service with TGM they put in Castrol and it hasnt bunt oil ever since. Its been almost a year now and the oil is still a nice light brown colour. My car is ticking over 17k and I use the car every day.

Castrol edge 0W30 is £5 for a litre at homebase at the moment - I think they are clearing out old stock so a few branches don't have any left. I've put the diesel version in at my last service.

not sure if many are awear but i rang around a few dealers a few weeks before my first service to get quotes and they all said as standard they put in semi synthetic unless asked and payed extra for the fully!!
i have to say i noticed it too,as before my service i only topped up with oil once and now that i have fully im having to top it up every 3-4 weeks.:mad:
to add i hardly do many miles a week...
