5W-40 Oil

5W40 Engine Oil

Many cars are designed for specific environments, whether it’s high speed or the wear and tear of city driving. The oil you use is no different. 5W-40 engine oil has been specially designed to help cars that face extremes, whether it’s particularly cold weather combined with higher temperatures or cars that have to sit in traffic.

Not sure if 5W-40 is the right oil for your vehicle? Choose the right engine oil for your Honda to maximise performance and shop our range of Honda engine oil and fluid.

5W-40 oil has been expertly engineered to offer optimal performance at extreme temperatures. This means the oil is just as viscous at -30°C as it is at higher temperatures like 50°C. This is one of the reasons it works so well in high-performance vehicles and can improve both fuel efficiency and the longevity of your parts.

We stock 5W-40 engine oil from the best producers on the market, including Castrol engine oil and Mobil engine oil as well as genuine Honda 5W-40 oil. We only stock genuine Honda parts and accessories or ones that have been produced by Honda certified technicians. If you need another grade then we can help as we stock a number of different types of Honda engine oil & fluid.

What is 5W-40 oil used for?

5W-40 engine oil is one of the most common types of oil used for engines. It helps the vehicle’s engine to operate and protect engine parts from frictions, keeping you on the road. 5W-40 can be used in many different Honda engines, including some Honda Civic Type-Rs, the Honda Elysion, the Honda Integra DC2, and the Honda S2000.

Which oil is better 5W-30 or 5W-40?

The right Honda oil for your vehicle depends entirely on the model, engine size, and fuel type. You need to choose the correct grade of oil for your engine to ensure it will work in low temperatures and high temperatures.

Both 5W-30 oil and 5W-40 oil have the same winter (W) viscosity grade, meaning they work at temperatures as low as -30°C. However, 5W-40 engine oil performs better at higher temperatures of up to 50°C compared to 5W-30 which is effective up to 30°C.

It’s essential to have the right oil for your Honda as the wrong one could prevent the engine from running correctly and cause friction between engine parts. Engine oil that is too thick won’t run smoothly through the engine and a thin oil won’t properly protect the car parts. If you aren’t sure which oils and fluids you need for your vehicle, check the owners manual.
