Re: Type of oil?
You can, most use Mobil 1 synthetic. It seems to be a great oil (as good as most anyway) and readily available wherever you go. Some Amsoil, Castrol, etc.
If you plan to take it to the dealer everytime, and not DIY, make sure they dealer gives you a discount to bring in your own oil and filter. If you use Honda filters use the A01 model ONLY. That's why it's best to bring your own or DIY, because you don't know what the dealer uses.
Most dealers now offer synthetic, Honda oil is not made by Honda.
Use only Honda fluid for the transmission, rear differential (VTM4) ( many only use Honda power steeering/brake and coolant. ) But the transmission and diff. is critical.
There are numerous threads and key points on this forum about maintenance. Reading the owner's manual thoroughly is the first step in becoming an expert!
