Wear metals look good,
I'd give Quarkerstate another shot and see how it does.
For some reason you had higher fuel% when you ran it last time, probably making for slightly higher wear numbers.

Thanks for posting. thumbsup

The new formulation of SS is awesome. I've got a sample of 5w20 in to the lab for analysis for my FIL's van and I will have one from my van for 0w30 shortly as well.

That fuel dilution tendency on those engines is crazy.

I would lose the 0W and move to 5W. Find a thicker 5W30 like Quaker State Ultimate Durability. Run it 5K.

Give Dollar Genera motor oil a try. You wouldn't right? then why listen to the other guy and give Shell a try?

It really is. Unacceptable IMO, especially for a Honda.

We have a honda civic with the 1.5t ans last month there was a recall done for the fuel dilution. Might be worth a call to your dealer.

The big question is does the fuel dilution truly mean anything? With UOAs like this it’s hard to say it’s as horrible as everyone tries to make it out to be.

My last oil change was nearly perfect. No fuel rise on the dipstick following the olm, roughly 7500 miles factory fill. This go around EP 0W20. Haven’t checked the oil in a while. Mind you I live in Texas. 18 CRV with 1.5T
