How Much Oil Does a Honda Accord Take?

The 2022 Honda Accord with the 1.5L 4-cyl engine (engine code L15BE Turbo) takes 3.7 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 synthetic oil. The Honda Accord with a 2.0L 4-cyl engine (engine code K20C4 Turbo) takes 5.1 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 synthetic oil. The Honda Accord with a 2.0L 4-cyl engine (engine code LFB2) takes 4 quarts (with filter) of 0W-20 synthetic oil. A new oil filter and a crush washer are required.

Actually, the quality of oil has a direct impact on your automobile’s performance plus lifespan. Thus, by employing good oil, you can drive about 5,000 miles instead of 250,000 miles. If you need more examples, here they are:

  • At 0° and lower temperatures, the quality of oil is very noticeable as it can flow around the motor for 3 minutes instead of 10 seconds if oil is of low quality.
  • Low-quality motor oil becomes thicker over time, resembling pasta sauce that thickens up after being reheated several times. Thus, bad quality 5w-20 oil may become 5w-40 if you fail to change it in time.
  • High-quality engine oils keep the motor clean and may even purify it from the deposits, which appeared as a consequence of bad oil application.

Not everyone knows that by changing your engine oil, you have a chance to enhance your motor’s fuel efficiency by about 2%.

It seems to be a trifle, but if 1/3 of American car owners reduced their fuel use by 2%, about 1 billion gallons of gasoline would be saved, contributing to lower carbon dioxide emissions by 8 million tons. It’s identical to taking 1.5 million automobiles off the road.
