Another oil to choose from, PC Synthetics are actually very very good oil.

most of the synthetic oils meet HTO-6 standard, but unfortunately testing process and certification cost a lot of money, and most of the manufactures do not want to spend a lot of money to capture very small market of RDX. On top of that, they know that even if they get HTO-6 certification, most of RDX owners will still continue using Mobil1.. so its a bad business decision for them...

I would love to buy Canadian, and not wanting to sound unpatriotic, but if I can go to the US Walmart and get 4.78L for $20.00, why would I pay the $8 per Litre for a Canadian brand oil.

Also, just 4 weeks ago, Canadian Tire was selling Pennzoil Synthetic for $25.00 for 4.78L.

No place sells PetroCan Synthetic oil, except the gas kiosks and also at PetroCan sales office itself.

I am not sure why you are so excited about seeing our Canadian brand being HT-06 compliant.

If I change my oil at a non-Acura (or non-Honda) dealership, how do I reset the oil life indicator?
