Always use Honda Genuine Oil, available at your Honda dealer. When Honda Genuine oil is not available, it is very important to choose an oil displaying the "Starburst" certification symbol, shown left. This symbol indicates that the oil meets the latest performance requirements set by the automotive and oil industries. Oil bearing the Starburst will provide superior performance in the areas of deposit and sludge protection, wear protection, and oil life. These oils will also protect the environment by extending the life of your emissions system and conserving energy through better fuel economy.
American Honda recommends the use of Honda Genuine oil for your vehicle. This oil meets the Starburst performance requirements listed above but is also subjected to a series of Honda-specific tests to guarantee optimum performance and compatibility with your Honda vehicle.
Refer to your owner's manual to determine the proper weight (viscosity) grade for your Honda. Your vehicle was designed to use this specific weight grade. Confirm that the weight listed on your oil's label matches this recommendation exactly before using it in your engine.
