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 ?

When I was working at a Honda dealership we used a bulk oil that met Honda specs. We never in the thirty years I worked there had an oil related failure because of the oil we used. We also had Honda branded bottled oil to use if a customer demanded it. It was a little bit more than the bulk oil.
