So... Switched to a thinner oil today, Mobil 1 5w30, and Honda MTF! The car drives a million times better. In fact, I think my mileage will be better on the next time(if the highway stays clear of accidents).

New LB datas
I can now get in as long as I am within the following
2000-3500 rpm, loads is>45%+/-5%, LB will kick in and stays as long as there is no big changes in TP and Load stays belong 92%.

What kind of Mobil 1? full synthetic?

Congrats on the easier lean burn and learning the car!

YES, full synthetic!

First day driving my normal route to work this morning. With the lighter oil and HMTF, I was able to lean Burn 70% of my trip including the up hill part where I use to have a hard time staying in LB. will have more info end of the week.
