  1. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    The reason why I'm asking this question is as follow. No, I'm not denying that we have fuel in the oil because I experienced it in my last oil change. Now what I'm not able to rationalize is how come my fake oil level does not continue to climb upward? After I changed my oil at 4K miles and...
  2. Gen 4: 2012-2016 (UK 2012-2017) CR-V
    Hey. First time poster here . I'm wondering what's a reasonable real world mpg for their crvs . Im currently driving a 2014 ex. I always use the econ mode. I am getting 20.8 mpg. I heard some people as high as 28. What can I do to improve the mpg other then driving habits.

    2017 cr-v pulls to the right After reading the above thread in it's entirety from January of this year, I just have to give my opinion in hopes it will save someone hard earned money in the future. Front end alignment on Honda consist of three (3) settings, Caster/Camber/ &Toe[, the first two...
  4. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    With all the discussion ongoing about regular vs premium, I'm wondering if anyone has access to and is using gasoline with NO alcohol added. You should be getting better performance and better gas mileage (gasoline without alcohol has more energy). Probably no money savings. Comments based...
  5. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Every person I talk to says the same thing. "We can't keep them in stock". Yet when I look at their lots they seem to have plenty of them. "This is our best seller". Yet I have only seen three so far out in the wild and I live in the Dallas area so I see a LOT of cars every day. Also truecar...
  6. Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I'll start by requesting that this NOT be a discussion of premium vs regular, as that is being hotly debated in another thread. I'd like to focus solely on regular gas here, but examine the benefits of optimum/higher detergency. I'll also state that a) I know that Honda recommends top-tier in...
  7. Dear Honda:
    Not applying force on 4 wheels at the same time. It's just switching from FWD to RWD.
  8. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    It seems that Honda specifies different service intervals for various maintenance items in different parts of the world. I suspect that part of the reasoning is different environments and typical operating habits, but I've also read comments that some items such as oil changes and possibly...
  9. Greetings & Introductions
    Hey everybody, I just recently bought a 2007 CR-V and I like it a whole lot so far. She's got some miles on her but I'm sure she's got plenty more. This is my first actual car (had a hand-me-down piece of junk prior) and she's got a couple quirks to her which I hope to find solutions to on this...
  10. Shopping & Test Driving
    Hey guys, So I'm moving towards getting a new CR-V. I go camping a lot so some big things for me are the MPG (distance driving up into the boonies and making it back down) the AWD (don't want to get stuck) and the towing (sometimes I like to go to the lake with my Sea-Doo) oh and off road ride...
  11. Shopping & Test Driving
    Hi , On the CRV , i want to change the 5th tyre - to a real one. I checked on the net prices and a 215 / 70 R16 100S is about 100 dollars. Are other CRV owners doing this ? is it just me feeling un-confortable that i have a emergency tyre in my trunk that can be used for a few miles at best. I...

  14. Diesel CR-V
    Hi guys, I'm thinking of buying a 2005 HONDA CR-V 2.2 i-CDTi SE with 94,000miles for £6000 (gbp). What sort of mpg can I expect and how many miles could I realistically expect these engines to live for. Any other buying tips/advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, very important to me is how...
  15. Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    My '97 arrived with the cute silver bar under the front bumper just smashed and dented, so first thing I did was remove it. Unless I'm completely confused, I can't find anyone selling a "real" skid plate for the Gen1. I took some measurements today and did a mock-up skid plate out of...
  16. Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    I'm talking real word MPGs. No hypermiling, no subconsciously trying to get MPGs out of it. Just get in a drive like 90% of the people on the road. EPA 22 city, 27 HWY My wife gets 17mpg (city), which, well, sucks. I have never pulled over 23mpg on the hwy, which, well, sucks. Every single car...
  17. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    What is the real capacity of the 2009's tank? The manual states 15.5 gallons. With 1.0 gallons remaining, I put in 2.2 more gallons to get home, about 6 miles, then just put in another 14.5 gallons. By my estimate, after about 15 miles of driving, that should equal about 17 gallons. When I...
  18. Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Contemplating getting a popup trailer or lightweight travel trailer (such as those made by Casita and Scamp). As I reported in another thread, I recently towed about 1600lbs for about 140 miles and got about 13 miles per gallon. This is not so hot, especially when compared to larger SUVs and...
  19. Performance Modifications
    Hello. I have an idea about a way of manualy activating the rear diff so I have 4 wheel drive in certain situations. 1st. Ive noticed the diff doesnt seem to engauge on my 2004 CRV EXL in reverse. I was backing a boat trailer and a small rise held a front wheel. The result was wheel slip but it...
  20. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Ok, to me this is the most simple question, but I cannot seem to find a solid answer anywhere. I've called 3 Honda Dealers, speaking to someone in sales and service in each location. Got 3 different answers. I also called Honda Customer Service. I've read my manual. I've used Google. I still...
