    When did Honda come out with this 1.5 T engine?

    Maybe Honda should put this in the manual. Have you petitioned them to add it?

    I'm trying to just follow this thread and not participate, but come on... While I'm sure this helps reduce OD, it is not a fix and not something most people are willing to do after spending $30k+ on a new vehicle. Especially a Honda.

    What is that supposed to mean? Do you just accept vanilla ice cream when you order chocolate, or do you expect what you ordered? People buy Honda, because of their reputation. Deal with it.

    People bought a turbo direct injection engine. Yet they treat them like a NA 4 pot.

    Your lack of understanding of how a vehicle works is not Honda's fault. It's yours.

    Seriously? I currently own the competition, a 2019 CX-5 Signature. It is a DI turbo and we can drive it any way we like. Why is Honda so special, in your mind, that it "requires" changing driving habits? You make it seem like the owners of this gen CR-V are stupid, because they expect a driving experience they're used to from Honda.

    I think a lot of users on here see my posts and assume I don't have an issue. I have personally seen the oil level rise on my dipstick. At one time I had a morning where my idle was rough. Plugged in OBD2 reader and ltft was at -11%. That was the aha moment. Especially after reading the GM and Mazda TSBs regarding p0172.

    Personally I leave the OBD2 reader in all the time. I would suggest some of you learn to do the same.

    I still don't any of the "evidence" you are so fond of. If you keep asking others for hard evidence, then you better have some to back up your claims.

    Mike728 its probably best to stop arguing with this guy as it appears that this is his hobby or a form of entertainment. There is an ignore feature that I have used for one person already and probably will be doing so again.

    I already posted how to view if dilution is happening.

    Watch your fuel trims with an OBD2 reader. On a cold day you can watch your trims go very negative until the point of dilution. The GM and Mazda TSBs told us this. I was able to mimmick this on the CRV as well.

    This also resulted in rising level on the dipstick. I have been through it twice.

    If you drive it long enough and hard enough, you can watch your fuel trims come back to normal, which means the fuel vapor in the cylinder due to dilution is gone. Drive it until your trims are back to near 0.

    This resulted in the oil levels going back down.

    If you want to test it, start your car on a cold day, and just let it idle for 10-15 minutes, report your Long Term Fuel Trims to us.
