Well why waist money on semi blend. You can use this then...

$2.29 a quart. That old Honda will be just fine. No need to worry with the slug that will build up in the heads.


Well if were gonna talk about it, may as well figure out what's the best oil for the buck.
For the annual oil change, I'd splurge the extra buck-and-a-half per quart to get a 5-quart jug of Pennzoil 5W-20 full-synthetic for $18.84 at Walmart.

That was a public service for those obsessed with the subject of motor oil.
As I stated in that post. (Though I'm not obsessed about it)
"Thanks @xGS I was trying to find the Valvoline Advanced specs."
It just happens that the Menards thats somewhat close to me carries the filters/fluids that I'm using at prices similar to the Wal-Mart that is clear accross the county from me.

I'm sure this regular full synthetic Pensoil has a great Noack rating too.

OMG please don't tell me this thread is devolving into an oil pissing match... the new Moderator should immediately give both of them a time out any time they start bickering like this.

Maybe it was the two posts about misspelling that set him off.
But it was misspelled, the closest dealer here charges more than MSRP for parts/supplies.
For a certainly my comment on the subject will either be out of concern for quality and cost. Paying for unnecessary catalytic converter replacement is the one that gets me the most.

Why haven't you become a moderator for all the years you have been here? You could be like...

I told you knuckleheads to take your Pilot to the dealership for service! 🤣
Since you asked, before about January 2020, I didn't participate here nearly as much as after a certain new member joined, one who seemed to have a decidedly anti-dealer service department and anti-Honda parts/fluid stance, and who couldn't seem to make a single post without including a reference to a single brand/formula of ATF or a single brand/model of tire, as though nothing else was any good. Someone had to provide a semblance of balance with viewpoint in opposition to that of someone else who seemed to be monopolizing the conversation.

Lol
Ya, as if the fearmongering of DIYing with aftermarket products wasn't an issue here (and on most Honda forums) when I began posting January 2020.

The Honda estore will show the prices at whichever dealer you select.
In my area, there's a significant difference in prices between dealers.
Some dealers will match other dealers' prices.
I found a dealer that's prices are about half what that dealer only a couple miles from me charges.
They also have very reasonable shipping charges, and ship fast. 3 days from AZ to WI works for me.
