0W20 is a synthetic product and only from what I've learned. If anyone knows different then please let us know.

The dealership sells 2 flavors 0-20w oil, no idea the difference. All synthetic. You do want synthetic, lasts twice as long, doesn't degrade the way petrol products do.

Honda branded engine oil

Honda brand oils are bottled by Conoco/Philips. They come in 0W20 Synthetic Blend, Black bottle, for around $10 and Full Synthetic, silver bottle, for around $12 a quart.

You can buy either by the case on Amazon and eBay for less. I buy 0W20 and 5W20 Mobil1 full synthetic in 5 quart jugs at Walmart for around $24.

I buy Honda A01 oil filters in a case of 10 for around $50 including crush washers on Amazon.

You cannot put standard oil in a new CRV because the oil required is only available in synthetic.

Honestly also very bad choice to run conventional in a new engine especially one with a turbo. Most turbo engines require synthetic or warranty is void. Honda may or may not say it but the oil required only comes in synthetic.

Conventional oil is dead more or less. Synthetic out performs conventional in literally every way.

Dealer prices vary, seems they can charge whatever they want. My dealer was reasonable, $7 or 8 iirc. Was a full synthetic, they had 2 flavors, couldn't tell me what the difference was.

Honda does not use the word “required” motor oil in the Gen 5 manual, it says “recommended” motor oil. The Honda manual does not say “synthetic” oil is “required” nor does it say 0W20 is “required”. I didn’t see anything about “voiding warranty” either. Maybe I missed it.

If you use anything that's much away from specced oil then they don't have to honor warranty if there is a failure of lubricated parts.

Also no owners manual says you will void the warranty regardless of what you do. but trust me it's in fine print somewhere in the paperwork you sign when you purchase.

You don't have to use 0w20, 5w20 is fine too. But using conventional in a modern turbo engine, good luck with that when the motor fails and your stuck with the repair bill. That's been common knowledge for about a decade now, newer vehicles use synthetic. None say required required but only say recommended, but if you plan to keep it for the long haul you will understand why pretty much all manufactures (can't say all cause not sure on everyone) that have factory turbo gasoline engines have been synthetic for a decade or more. Volkswagen owners learned this the hard way because they are like you all. Then engines/turbos failing by 100k miles and people told "not covered your responsibility"

If you read carefully you'll find the substitutes of oils but you must replace the next oil change or should I said you should replace b/c must is a harsh word for this forum

Parts of post #9 seem contradictory to parts of post #5, or vice versa.:headscratch: Everybody is entitled to an opinion.....but opinions often differ from the printed page in the owner's manual. Seems like I've read plenty of opinions saying "bad advice" or "bad info". There's plenty of same in this thread as well.

Only people that say it's bad info are ones that have little understanding of how vehicles, warranties and such actually work.

And your personal interpretation of the owner's manual doesn't mean your free to just do whatever you want and expect things to be covered by warranty.

It's a vehicle you bought and paid for but if you want hassle free warranty coverage/longest life then use what is recommended and best for your vehicle.

Ya and I can read the same things you do.

I also have been in the industry my entire life. I know the crap that gets pulled with warranties and such. Your reading the basic info from the owner's manual, not all the time print of the warranty details.

Basically telling you to do what you want, but when things don't work out don't say no one warned you.

It's like saying because someone typed in a book humans can fly and it's safe you would blindly believe it and ignore the advise of everyone else that knows better.

Why not just go with Mobil 1 or Pennzoil 0w20 synthetic oil ? They have rebates on them at least 2 times a year.

Right now it's Penzoil $10 rebate on 5 quart


https://www.pennzoil.com/en_us/prom...motion-14.html#iframe=L2RpeS9TcHJpbmdNSVIxOS8


You can get it at walmart for $22.68 - $10 mail in rebate for a total of $12.68 for a 5Quart jug.

I agree. Get whatever high quality synthetic oil that goes on sale. The price difference between synthetic and conventional is so slim it doesn’t make sense to buy conventional oil.
