    Default Best oil for short journeys???

    Gonna do an oil change on my 1.8 z18xer I understand I need 5w30 oil and around 4.5L

    My question is, my daily commute is 2 miles each way. The engine just about fully warms up (unles it's really cold) is there an oil which is better for shorter journeys than standard stuff, like magnex (or whatever it's called!)?

    stick to the recommended oil and change more often, with perhaps a longer run on the weekends to fully warm the engine, should work just fine.
