But we can discuss and disagree about oil and not end up hating each other.  This site is sort of a beacon of civility to shine on the malfunctioning political world.   :046:

Those good old 2stroke days when you could use virtually any liquid that resembles an oil for your engine :153:

Yeah, when you had to decoke the baffles every other week and change the plugs every other day (if you were lucky!)...and then you discovered Silkolene  2 stroke oil and found you didn't need to do all that messy stuff!  :001:

Yep. That was the genuine taste of adventure   :110:  Now I'm baddly accustomed to Motul 7100 10W30 full syntetic oil - zero oil consumption and the cleanest plugs I've ever seen.

I sure won't discuss oil.
But, any filter that fits a Honda Fit car will work on our X'es (and many other Hondas as well).
Have used Purolator filters for years on my X and previous Hondas.

Oil is simple.
Get the oil that meets the spec provided.  Iím a big fan of Rottella.  Readily available and meets the spec.

I just changed mine last weekend and also went with the Castrol Actevo 4T 10W-30 part synthetic and a K&N filter. I bought both off of Revzilla and the reason was the good price point for both. Revzilla did not carry OEM Honda filter. The oil seemed like a good mid-point oil. Anyway, it's oil. And it's a filter. As long as it's the right weight oil and the right size filter installed correctly then it is better than nothing at all!
