    I got my 2003 Honda Accord about a month ago and have put about 1000km on it so far. Eventually when I reach the 8000 km first oil change, I want to put a 10w-40 synthetic oil instead of the 5w-20 recommended in the manual. Does anyone know if I will notice any differences as far as the car performance goes or if there will be any problems that can happen if I do this?

    Thanks!

    I was reading up on a fairly reputable auto journalist in the Montreal area and he was describing his experience with a brand of synthetic oil called Motrlube(http://www.canadiandriver.com/articles/pb/synthetic.htm). Now that gas prices here have hit an unbelievably high $0.90 a litre, looking for different ways to save gas would be nice. Supposedly this guy's milage improved a lot after using Motrlube. I checked out Motrlube's website and they only offer 10w-40 and 10w-50. This is why I'm asking. :p
