Was reading that sheet and it says it's formulated to "raise oil pressure". That made me wonder how this specific synthetic 10w30 could raise the oil pressure over any other synthetic 10w30 oil?

Man just put in what Honda recommends I don’t understand how the snake oil companies stay in business. Honda is the largest engine manufacturer on the planet and commits billions and billions of dollars in research. They have the most reliable products in the world. If they don’t know what’s best for their engines no one does. Call it marketing or whatever you want. When it comes down to it who do you trust. You bought their brand didn’t you?

Other than the Honda name, this oil IS what Honda recommends; API, JASO, 10W30, not energy conserving. Walmart's SuperTech ATV synthetic 10W30, too.

According to my 2003 owners manual, the “suggested oil is Honda”. It does not state to only use Honda oil, it only states what type. The owners manual also states, Do Not Pull A Trailer, Do Not Put A Car Tire On, Only Use Genuine Honda Accessories, Do Not Exceed Load Limits. It also tells us what the maintenance schedule is and it also tells us at what MPH to shift gears, So How Many Of Us follow our owners manual exactly as Honda recommends ??

I have used Amsoil, Lucas, Mobil 1, Castrol, Valvoline, Motul, Klotz and Redline and various other oil brands in my motorcycles (and other toys) and not one of them has ever had an engine related failure......go figure!
