  1. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I was wondering whether brand (Arco, Chevron, 76, et..) and octane level of gas affect the gas mileage of my CRV LX 2018 vehicle. So I conducted a very unscientific experiment - e.g. I kept notes of my refills and mileage per refills. Obviously I don't drive the same route every day (thus the...

    why in the online manual does it say "Unleaded gasoline, Pump octane number of 87 or higher "?....what benefit would running the mid range gas other than the costs?....just wondering why Honda puts that in there?

    *statistically it is improbable with some limitations. Read on! I conducted a statistical analysis of 54 fillups. There's much more analysis of other variables (not shown) but 54 tanks isn't enough to go deeper than this. If everything pans out I'll be able to tell if you if summer vs...

    Hello all. New CRV owner here. Just wanted to post this up as informational for those who are curious as to the effect different octanes have on the CRV 1.5t engine. I am not claiming any performance or MPG differences by using different octanes, just showing the differences I observe via a...

    With the 2017 CRV with the 1.5 turbocharged engine, do you need to run a Premium Gasoline as well? Thanks
  6. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    On my 2004 CR-V has about 132k miles. I bought it from the original owner at about 122k. She maintained it pretty well, but there is a noticeable sub-second lag/hesitation during acceleration in most gears (it's a manual transmission) around the 2-3k rpm range. For the heck of it the other...

    Can high-octane fuel damage the engine in the long term Hi all, The owner’s manual of my 2013 CR-V recommends “octane of 95 or higher”. Since I have the car (2K miles) I’ve been running it on 95 only. Now I’m considering switching to a higher-end blend, which apart from the cleaning additives...

    Does higher octane gas improve performance AND gas mileage? If so, does the increase in fuel efficiency offset the increase in price per gallon? I'm really interested to see if anyone has done any research regarding this.
  9. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hi, I'm awaiting delivery of my 2011 XL AWD. I'm already dreading the curse of the Bridgestone Duelers mine will probably have, especially since I live a snowy, icy area. :eek: That aside, I'm wondering about the effects of the 10.1 compression ration on performance and economy. Normally, a...

    i just want to ask what is the recommended type of gasoline and octane rating to use in crv 99 model manual, to get good fuel economy and bring the best power out of my crv..:):)
  11. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Hello all, We just got a brand new 2010 LX and are loving it so far. We haven't gone through a tank of gas yet, so I thought I'd ask this now. Here at ~5200 ft, regular gas is 85 octane. Our choices are generally 85, 87, and 91 octane at the pumps. I read in the owner's manual that 87...

    Hi, We've had our EX-L for about a week and Saturday I filled it with gas for the first time. I guessed that 89 octane would be OK; so, that's what I used. Should I go higher (93) or lower (87)? Thanks
  13. Performance Modifications
    I am moving from Maryland to Colorado and, of course, taking my 2008 CRV EX 4wd. Their regular grade gasoline in the Denver area is 85 octane (87 is mid-grade). I was told that, with the higher altitude and thinner air, it's not necessary to use 87 octane. Does this hold true with the CRV...
  14. Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    My dealer says that even though the manual says to use 87 octane, because of our altitude in the Denver area, the engine will actually run better on 85 and that is what I should use. I've researched this a bit, and there are clearly two camps on the subject. One says that this altitude/octane...
