What type of oil do any XR owner use? The local dealer here in Honolulu told me to change the oil after the first 1,000 miles, which is what i did, but i used a full synthetic by valvoline for the first change. Does anyone have any suggestions on what oil type i should use.

Re: Oil

Go with an extended drain interval full synthetic. I used the Mobil extended mileage for a long time in my old Sentra but switched to Amsoil for the X. Its nice to only have to change the oil once or twice a year.

Re: Oil

I've used alot of different oils out there.... STi's burn oil no matter what....They love to eat Mobil 1 like no tomorrow... When I changed to Amsoil, NO oil consumption... When I cant get my hands on Amsoil, Royal Purple does the trick, again NO oil consumption. Not to mention my EGT's drop 100 deg. with either oil....Tells me something......:D Hpoe this helps you man.....

I just switched to using Mobil 1 at my 15,000km (approx. 10,000 miles) oil change. I've always been told that you shouldn't use synthetic oil until the engine is fully broken in. The apparent reason is that synthetic oil is so good at preventing engine wear it would never wouldn't let the engine break in properlly and oil consumption could occure later in it's life.

Just what I've heard and it kind of made sense to me so I've always waited 'till about the third oil change before making the switch to synthetic. :waytogo:
