I am happy that fully synthetic oil is the best, but does anyone know if I am doing any harm using 5-40 - I couldn't find 0-30

ACEA (European) sequences are the usual standard for diesel car engines. There are currently no NA diesel cars, and API don't test car diesel engines, SFAIK. There are sequences for DPF equipped vehicles (Cx) and, though not relevant to the 2.2 Honda engine, sequences for heavy-duty engines (Ex). The manual should state the minimum standard, e.g ACEA Bx.

Without in any way denigrating Bob, the site has a NA slant. As stated previously, there are no NA diesel cars, and certainly no Honda 2.2 diesels on sale. Just use the makers advice - which is probably NOT an oil of 10W-40 viscosity, although viscosity is only part of the picture. I'd suggest RTFM, or the UK oil supplier Opie oils. :D
