Prelude H22A7 oil consumption

Hy,

i bought a Honda Prelude with H22A7 engine from accord type r (212 hp).

When I bought the car, engine is run od Castrol Edge Sport 10w60 oil.

I know that the former owner said he spent quite a bit of the oil, under 1/2 liter in 1000km.

Now I poured ELF 5W40 full synth, and the 1000 km I had already spent about 1 liter of oil-about 200 km highway, 500 km of normal driving up to 3000 RPM and the other 300 km of light and a little faster driving with VTEC, hhhh.

VTEC is working normally, fell to about 6000 rpm (high kick), the engine is operating normally, a little white beam which is normal for the winter.

Is 10w60 oil would then be a solution for that engine?

Re: Prelude H22A7 oil consumption

Vtec's normally burn oil. Get used to it, and get used to checking your oil at every fill-up.

Since this is discussed almost daily...
