Firstly, I'm suprised that the oil warning light did not come on on your dashboard. Mine comes on when the oil level is about 1cm ABOVE the minimum mark on the dipstick.What do these numbers mean?
The Honda garage presented us with a Litre of Mobil1 0 w 30. presumably for topping up during the year. But the leaflet with the oil says it is for light petrol engines and I have the diesel (4 years old now)
Interestingly, in the first two years of ownership I checked my oil every 3 - 4 months and it did not need topping up (about 10,000 miles a year). This year, I lost the habit and noticed last night (8 months since service) that the oil is just below the minimum on the dipstick. I did not top up as I was uincertain as to whether I had the right oil
Hopefully no lasting damage if the minimum allows for a bit of safety margin, or should we keep it topped up towards the top end? Is it a case of the more oil the better?
