What makes Honda Oil special?

What makes Honda Oil special?

Oil changes are part of the routine maintenance involved in car ownership, but not all motor oil is created equal. Portland Street Honda uses ONLY synthetic oil for model years 2012 and above for good reason!

It’s not uncommon to hear about a “bargain” price of an oil change. Oil changes are part of the routine maintenance involved in car ownership, but not all motor oil is created equal. Portland Street Honda uses ONLY synthetic oil for model years 2012 and above for good reason!


Synthetic oil vs. conventional oil

  • Synthetic oil is exactly what it sounds like: an engine lubricant created artificially from chemical compounds.
  • Synthetic oil can boost horsepower more effectively than thinner regular oils.
  • Synthetic oil contains fewer contaminants like sulfur, wax, and other elements that contribute to sludge build-up. That translates to less frequent oil changes compared to conventional motor oil.
  • It is recommended that you change conventional oil every 4,000 to 8,000km. With synthetic oil though, that number increases to about 12,000km between changes.
  • Synthetic oils will help protect your engine at high temperatures and keep it running in the cold.

Honda firmly believes in the value of using synthetic oil exclusively to support the health of your vehicles engine. That is why Honda has offered to subsidise the cost of  EVERY synthetic oil change that Portland Street Honda performs. What this means for you, is that we are able to offer the most competitively priced synthetic oil change in HRM!
