Hi there
Just Brought my first CRV my question is what oil to use ,Have looked through your forum most of you say to use OW-20 but most of you live in America
I live in England which when i look here it tells to use 5W-40 have tried to understand the numbers but get confused with not getting to thin in winter and to thick in summer, so does the locations ie GB USA make a diference and what oil to use thanks :eek:

Look at your OIL Cap. Whatever it say’s on it, is what you should use.

Here is Hondas Official Recommendation for UK Honda CRV Engines, by type, by model year



Red Legend, First Red Box on LEFT is starting model year 2002, last Red Box is ending model year 2014

Green Legend, First Green Box on LEFT is 0W20, then 0W30, then 5W30

For example CRV Engine RE5-RE7, starting from model year 2007 until 2014 is recommended 0W20
