My local Honda dealer will change my engine oil for 20 bucks.. Anyone know who makes the "Honda" oil? I usually use Mobil 1 high mileage, since i just turned 135k
"High Mileage" M1 has additives to swell oil seals that leak, stuff like that. If you have not ever had seal leaks to try and 'solve' with solvent rather than fix, stay away from the high-mileage versions.

That is strange. probably that filter LOLI know synthetic blend is not as good as full synthetic. However, after changing my 05 Pilot engine oil with M1 5w-20 full synthetic with Honda oil filter, I don't get gas pedal response as good as with dealership oil after 3900-mile driven. Mileage suffers too, roughly 1 or 2 off. This is not the first time. So strange.
I don't want to speak for 1,000 Honda dealers and 350 Acura dealers but many have either 0W-20 (synthetic) or 5W-20 (synthetic or blend) in bulk oil. They would not use quart bottles unless it was requested by the customer. You aren't going to get a blend if you request a full synthetic or the vehicle calls for it. Like PLT383 mentioned Honda is not in the oil manufacturing business. As with any purchase if you aren't sure ask before the work is done.
OK, I call BS on this one. Sorry. And I'm sure you think you do too- sense a different dealers work, etc. LOLI can sense my car drive differently if I have different dealership do oil change. So another variable to consider, not just oil. Didn't mean to sway your thought of where to go to have oil change though.
Dealership are franchised, owned by different people. Some are nicer, like, having more choice of snacks. This is real stuffs, tangible than senses. Try it.OK, I call BS on this one. Sorry. And I'm sure you think you do too- sense a different dealers work, etc. LOL
