I have a 2001 CRV and accidentally used 5W-20 instead of 5W-30 oil (recommended). Should I drain it and refill with 5W-30 or will driving it 3K and changing it be OK? I don't pull a boat nor am I planning any long trips - just to work and back and weekend kayaking.
From what I can find on the web Honda switched to recommending 5W-20 oil beginning in '02 and the CRV engine didn't change.
Thanks,

Not a problem. Being that you are in Florida, I would change it back before summer though due to the higher temps there.
