    Evening guys, service time on the CR-V and I'm wondering what type of oil to use in my 2.0 petrol. Fully synthetic or part synthetic?

    Honda recommended oil now is their own 0w20. Though over the years 5w40, 0w30, 5w30 and 10w40 will have been recommended also and will be fine.
    Honda petrol engines generally aren't fussy about oil and being automatic without type-r style high revving action, it's even less significant.

    I'm currently using Exol 0w20. was previously using 5w40 shell helix for years before that, all fully synthetic.

    10w40 is absolutely fine for an R20
