What type OIL is used in 2004 RX8?

Hi all. I only recently purchased my 2004 RX8 and still have the dealer doing oil changes. What type of oil typically goes in the RX8? Thanks in advance!

if the dealer is still doing oil changes, why don't you just let them continue doing it?

As far as having to "top it off" just ask them what brand they use and use the same. Problem solved.

Besides there's a **** load of info here on what oil to use and what not to. Just do a search

Red face Correct oil

What a bunch of jerks!

You're right, you will need to top it up between oil changes and you should use 5w-20.

Cheers. IvE just bought my '8 second hand, and it didn't have the owners manual so the advice here is great. However, the US owners manual indicates no synthetic, and that's all I can find at the local garages 8(. Damnit, I knew the rx8 used a little oil, but I didn't know I'd have to go to Saudi Arabia to get it myself

There are may threads based on synthetic vs dyno and weights. I personally used 5-30 synthetic before i went turbo and still continue to use synthetic just heavier weight. Mazda will not cover your warrenty if they know you have used it and due to the fact they did not do testing.
