    Thought you might like to see how Castrol Magnatec 0w20 keeps the engine clean in my 2015 Civic. Mileage is around 50k. Have been using only Castrol Edge or Magnatec since 15,000 miles and my oil monitor comes on at about 11000 miles. Message_1470965337592.jpg 20160811_202333.jpg

    That looks really clean in there. By the way, I hope you don't mind that I change your title from "Under oil cap 2015 Honda Civic" to be more direct to the point of your thread. I hope you plan to continue showing the progress over time.

    Castrol EDGE is great. My accord's engine even sounded a bit better after I put it in. If you like Castrol you should keep an eye on Advance Auto, we usually have good deals on it every month (e.g. 5qts Castrol Edge + Purolator BOSS filter for $32)

    Been getting the Magnatec at 4.79qt from napa. I have a oil analysis coming. Castrol Edge ran fine...I just loaded up on enough magnatec to last a long time.

    Hey thanks! I will post any changes as soon as possible. Ive been really impressed with how it looks inside the fill spout. Changed filter yesterday and added 2/10 qt of lubegard biotech to top off. New oil filter..but oil has around 5 to 6k with oil life at 50 percent status.

    That was my last bit of Castrol 0w20. I was contacted by Shell/Pennzoil and they are sending me out a care package of Pennzoil ultra platinum 0w20 and an analysis kit to send in. Going to Napa after Sept to pick up my 24qts of ultra platinum on sale.

    Will have picks of my Pennzoil UltraPlatinum care package as soon as it arrives. My mileage avg has been awesome even now.
