What type of engine oil should I use?

Whether you’re topping off the engine, changing your own oil or working with a new service station, it’s important to know what type of oil your engine is designed to use. The wrong oil weight can reduce fuel economy and possibly cause damage. Honda specifies that you should only use 0W-20 oil in your car, whether you have a 4-cylinder engine or a V6.
