I hope I posted this in the correct topic forum.
Im due for my first service soon. I have always done my own oil changes but for records and since it’s included Im going to let the dealer do it.
My question, is the dealer compelled to use Honda branded oil ? I ask because Ive seen 55 gal drums of motor oil there before. Sorry but I just cant put an unknown oil brand in my engine. I just cant, call me anal I get it.

Would you fellas agree that reading this:

The dealer is compelled to use Honda branded parts and oil ?

Opinions fellas ?

They will get whatever cheap oil they can find. Even Pepboys Proline oil can find a place in your engine.
The only way to be sure is to DIY.

Thanks Roger.
I thought it was a caption from Honda. Maybe not. Anyway Ill ask the leave the empty bottles in the box i put in the bed.
So easy to cheat.
Empty your premium oil in another container. Use the dealer's cheap oil.
Return the box of empty quarts to make you happy.
