I wondered too and asked the dealer. He said bearing tolerances. I wouldnt
take any chances for the small diff in price. I even spring for the Honda
filter since you only need to chg the oil once a year and filter every 20
check www.bobistheoilguy.com to find out how oil viscosity changes
in other words, the 5W20 that you put into the engine won't measure
5W20 when your mileage minder says its time for an oil change.
I've been using Mobil 1 in various weights but most often 0W30 or
5W30. I put 250K on my last engine which is still running well for its
changing the oil/filter on schedule and keeping the oil level at
"full" are more important than finding 5W20, IMHO.
