    1. Agree. If you do research on PCV, you would understand why extensive idling is not good for OD.
    2. Agree. This is what Honda has been preaching (cold engine = OD).

    4. Hmm, some people bought the CRV for MPG. Some people want their car to last a long time. Some people are under restrictions and can't drive aggressively (like me because I'm in a program with my insurance that monitor my driving in exchange for lower rate). Multiple reasons why this is not a good suggestion.
    5. I don't understand the "drive more" suggestion. Does this mean "go out of your way to drive 30 minutes for what supposes to be a 5 minute trip" or "Do a lot of unnecessary trips"?

    Wow, are you sure about using a block heater stop your OD problem??? I am trying to find a correlation between my insulation method (posted in another thread) and my observation about my OD situation (had OD but not anymore). This could be very exciting!

    The ignore feature works great.
    The only problem is when someone who is not ignored quotes a post by one of the ignored.
    But, yes, you are wasting your time arguing with dyldo.

    Well, I'll comment. What the heck is SN+ oil supposed to do for us?

    It's been discussed extensively that the advantages of SN+ oil are ONLY utilized in an engine specifically tuned for SN+ oil.
    The current 1.5L engine in our CR-Vs is not tuned for SN+ oil.

    Sounds like the CRV is designed to run with an mechanic/engineer on broad. It should also come with an OBD2 reader for Normal operation.

    It is totally irresponsible remarks like this that makes a mockery of this discussion. I am sick and tired of the "there is no evidence" argument. If you cannot understand that diluted oil is, without question, detrimental to the lifespan of you engine, then you need to study some basic theory regarding viscocity and lubrication. Perhaps you should join UMRdyldo in his lab and leave us the hell alone until he, as he states, 'solves the problem' that a company as distinguished as Honda can't even find a solution to.
    Maybe williamsjc would going forward for each oil change swap out 2 quarts of oil with 2 quarts of gasoline and do a long term test to prove his point. That will really put the rest to the OD chatter on this board. william, what do you say?

    To me, the block heater reducing oil dilution makes sense. It's actually very closely related to your insulation method in that the engine (and oil) stay at a higher temperature for a longer period of time when the engine has been shut down. I would think keeping the CR-V in a heated garage would reduce oil dilution as well, unfortunately I can't afford that option...

    #4, Do you guys not get good gas mileage while driving harder? My first year averaged 31.5 mpg and I'm pretty close to the same for the last 5 months. But I only use premium no ethanol.
    #5 If you are viewing the LTFT, you can access your situation better to see if you need to drive more or harder. I understand this upsets people, but I don't shoot the messenger just because you don't like it.

    LOL, Bob, so true. I ignore another guy and when someone quoted him, I still have to see his garbage.

    4. Eh, correct. Common sense, right? Aggressive driving (floor the pedal, accelerate hard) will reduce your MPG, not to mention more wear and tear. Unless you have a CRV that defies common sense, then I would like to purchase it from you.

    5. You didn't answer my question. What does "drive more" mean?
