    Your method may improve how quickly you obtain cabin heat, but saying that following it will ensure people never have problems with oil dilution is a stretch.

    The Canadian service bulletin (HSB-A-9-18) mentions that the warranty extension is discussed in a different bulletin, HSB-A-10-18.

    If someone can see a copy of that, perhaps it provides the details on what is covered.

    My latest information regarding the oil-dilution warranty extension information is that there is none. It has not been completed yet. It will be issued at a later time..

    Oil dilution is directly depend of how quickly the car reach a working remperature ~194F hence it help to avoid it.

    Please take these data with a grain of salt as there may be many factors affecting the results (even if the data is accurate which may not be).
    From http://carsalesbase.com/china-car-sa...da/honda-cr-v/
    I added the first 9 months of 2018 and 17 and got the following:
    2017 China CR-V Sales - Jan-Oct: 119,108
    2018 China CR-V Sales - Jan-Oct: 83,594 A 30% decline from 2017 YTD.

    According to Reuters (a far more reputable source) Honda sales OVERALL (not just CR-Vs) were down in China after the recall (not surprising).
    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-c...-idUSKBN1JT0IH

    Honda USA has not said much officially. They responded to trade publications and published a video (not much there IMO). They are aware of the sales hit in China, no doubt, and are trying to avoid it here. Again not surprising but from a customer perspective the lack of official information is not helpful.

    Saying that getting the engine up to temp can "help" and saying that if people use your HVAC settings they will "never have issues with oil dilution" are very different.

    If you change you own oil - you would see there is more than enough room to put a wider (not deeper) oil pan - there is enough room for 3 times as much oil pan in the engine compartment without blocking anything. There is at least 4 inches between the radiator and the engine oil pan that would not cause any loss of cooling to the radiator and 9 inches from the oil pan to the firewall that would leave 3 inches of clearance on both sides and I could fit 15 quarts of oil without going any farther right or left of the oil pan.

    The only negative to this is it would take 15% longer for the engine to warm up as you have more oil to heat up.

    10% fuel dilution in 3.5 quarts of oil is 5% in 7 quarts and 2.5% in 9 quarts - the bad news is $60 oil changes instead of $40. But your engine will still be running at 250,000 miles ( maybe not your turbo ).

    Did you factor in the time they quit selling the cr-v's until the fix was approved. Probably affected sales numbers.

    How do you get it to maintain 194F when it has a +/-172F thermostat?
