Genuine Honda Motor Oil  
Premium-grade 0W-20 detergent oil with an API Certification Seal on the  
Engine Oil Additives  
Your vehicle does not require oil additives. In fact,  
they may adversely affect the engine performance  
and durability.  
Oil is a major contributor to your engine's  
performance and longevity. If you drive the  
vehicle with insufficient or deteriorated oil,  
the engine may fail or be damaged.  
This seal indicates the oil is energy conserving  
and that it meets the American Petroleum  
Institute’s latest requirements.  
Use a Genuine Honda Motor Oil or another  
commercial engine oil of suitable viscosity for  
the ambient temperature as shown here.

You may also use synthetic motor oil if it is labeled with the API Certification Seal  
and is the specified viscosity grade.
