Re: OIL AND FLIUDS

Oil wise use exclusively Motul in mine. 300V 15W 50 in summer and 10W 40 in winter. In gear box use the Motule Gear 75W 90 and in the rear diff use Motul 90PA coz have the DCCD. Coolant wise also use the Subaru stuff. Will be changing brake fluid shortly along with all other fluids, air filter, plugs etc and will use Dot 5 along with upgrading to braided hoses.

Used these in my last DC2 with the 15w 50 found it great cause if any one well into hondas especially DC2s are known for burning a bit of oil expected really when it revs to nearly 9000rpm but with this oil it was not burning so much and felt a lot faster, with the gear oil gearbox felt great to might change to these at my next service..........................
