Default CRV 5w30 VS Pilot 5W20 Help Please

Hi All,
I have a 1998 CRV that takes 5w30 engine oil and a 2004 Pilot that
takes 5w20 engine oil, The CRV has high milage 160K kms. But runs
great. I do my own oil changes now and have bulk oil filters, as both
use the same filter. I would like to buy bulk oil and was wondering if
there would be any adverse effects if I put 5w20 in the CRV. I dont
want to change the grade for the Pilot.
Thanks in advance.
Hopeful.

Personally, I would rather put the heavier oil in both. The reason they
are requesting 5w30 is that the engine may need it. You are not going to
hurt the pilot by putting 5w30 in it, so it seems more logical...

====================================

You left out the most important factor. If you're in Northwest
Territories or Tahiti?? (160,000 Km isn't 'high mileage'). 5w30 or even
10w 30 might be fine depending on location.

Had a 2000 Accord and was told that 5W-20 was the preferred oil from 1998
and on.
May be the same for your CRV

If you want one size fits all, then put 5W-30 in both of them.

I agree re. oil weight. I put synthetic 5W-30 in all my cars.
Personally, I don't use those tea-cup sized Honda oil filters (whose
only design criteria is that they can be tightened/loosened by hand).
Purolator PurOne filters are larger and readily available on sale.

cannister size doesn't matter. it's internal filter medium area and
quality that matters. there's a bunch of web sites dissecting filters
to expose their guts and measure filter medium area, but i don't recall
seeing any that test filter media. it's very important and a huge gap
in the opinion forming process we so often see.

If anything I would go the 5W-30 in both. The 5W-20 may be a little thin
for the CRV. The only affect I would see on the pilot is a slight loss of
mileage.

Just my 2 cents.

size doesn't matter? where have we heard that before?

bobistheoilguy.com has some data.
area and quality matter but only so much media can fit into a tea cup.

please note how no other oil filters have shrunk recently; only Honda.
does Honda know something no one else knows or are they simply doing
something to make routine service easier (more profitable) for their
dealers?
