Just go with regular oil. just not cheap stuff. conventional will do for you engine. you dont want to feed it synthetic. it will last w/o it.

Go With Mobil 1 Fully Synthetic. That's the official motor oil of Honda (make sure your lude uses synthetic first!!!) Even if it doesn't take synthetic Mobil 1 is the brand that Honda uses.

^I second that. It also depends on how many miles are on your engine if you want to use synthetic.

I'd use a conv. oil or a synth. blend. If you have over 75-100k miles....Just use high mil. mobil-1 5000 10/30w-5/30w depending on your climate.

On another note...you mentioned you had a "benz"? What the hell....Use "royal purple", it's a pretty good product I hear.
