Default Accords And Synthetic Oil ?

Hello,

Do the 2014 (and 2015 ?) Accords require Synthetic Oil ?

Why ?

Thanks,
B.

I think you'll find that API SN 0W-20 is specified. All of that is
synthetic, or at least part-synthetic.

Because 0W-20 isn't really very good oil, and the only way to make it work
properly is to synthesize it.

Or, perhaps, to get more of your money, like 'premium' gas?
I was told that synthetic oil 'lasts longer' -- alas, the frequency
for changing oil is the same as the good old, less expensive one.
Yes, I am sure 'performance' will be touted .... I read about
the ablity of synthetic oil to survive 'extremes heat', etc.

As global warming is not that severe and I do not intend to
take that Accord to Mercury, I am a bit unconvinced ...
