If I used Mobile I get a few, even if I had to revisit the store again.

OK, here we go... Without saying that 2 letter abbreviation that I'm suffering from that will get this thread closed down if I mention it, what weight and what flavor of Mobi 1 should I go with? 0w-20, 5w-30, 0w-40, etc?? "Advanced Fuel Economy", "Extended Performance" or "High Mileage Protection"??? Does the "SN plus" rating that I keep reading about have any benefits to our little engines?

P.S.. Thanks for letting us know about the rebate UMRdyldo, that is a good deal! Now let the discussion begin....

Yeah I'm not starting the "that of which we do not speak" discussion in this thread.

0w20, 5w20, 0w30 and 5w30 are all within an acceptable range. I would not run a 40 weight. No 1.5T Honda engine in the world calls for it. Obviously stick with 0w20 if warranty weighs on your mind, but no dealer can tell the difference between 5w30 and 0w20 especially when the viscosity levels start to drop.

As for which version. The only version to not get is High Mileage. Extended performance is #1 in my book, but not needed if changing your oil a lot.

SN+ should be used whenever possible.

Also, I use my work address and family member addresses to get several jugs of this.

They sure took their sweet time; too late for me. Picked up a jug of Pennzoil Plat three or so weeks ago for with a $10 rebate.

For those that do need oil, it's good to know that the rebate works at W-M. They consistently have the best prices on oil, and they have a really good selection too. I'm kicking myself for buying oil from auto parts stores for years, where even on "sale" it's more expensive than the regular shelf price at W-M.

One cool thing about the M-1 rebate system is that they'll e-mail you a .pdf of your check, which you can then just deposit electronically; no easily overlooked paper check in the mail.

Fully agree!
Moreover here is a full spec of 1.5T engine - http://mywikimotors.com/honda-l15a-l15b/
Recommended engine oil:
0W-30
5W-30
5W-40
10W-40
That page covers the entire 1.5L "L15" engine family, which is used in a variety of applications and configurations, few of which are turbocharged. I would not assume that an oil spec'd for a '02 Fit with an NA SOHC engine producing 80HP would take the same oil as a turbocharged engine 15 years newer making twice as much power.

Correct. That link is not good for this discussion.

0w20 through 5w30 are all that should really be used.

Walmart isn't on the list of participating dealers. Does that matter?

I've seen it mentioned here and elsewhere that they will still accept it from Walmart.
I haven't personally tried, but likely will this time around.
I've been doing the rebates with oil bought at Wal-Mart for a few years. No problem.

Some people have reported that they called Mobile to confirm Wal-Mart was a participating seller.

You can call yourself to double check if you have any doubts.

Mobil. 1-866-895-9127
