honda recomends 5w-30......but i use straight 30 weight. its mainly on your preference where you live as the weather doesnt drastically change like it does out here.

it all depends on what season it is, and how hard you drive your car. i would use a heavier weight of oil for the summer and thinner for the winter. use synthidic if you drive it hard.
