Hiya, I have a 2003 petrol crv with 100 k on the clock, what's the best engine oil to use.

The one you have in it.

I would only use what is recommended by Honda, regardless of mileage. Here in the USA the weight is printed on my oil fill cap, 5W-20.

Thanks for that, I did want to use Honda recommended oil but more than one to choose from on the charts but have just found another Honda chart which specs just the one, 0W-20. Wasn't sure whether to use 5W-40 for an older engine! Cheers.

Whatever it specifies in your owner's manual and/or what's printed on the oil fill cap are what you want to use. No need to go looking for charts. For my CR-V, that's 0w-20.
