Good info, thanks for sharing.
If it were my vehicle, with that many miles I would switch from 0w20 to something thicker like 10w30 to start. Obviously thicker oil is not going to get past the rings like thinner oil can. Again, let me re-emphasize, if it were my vehicle. With 120K on the odometer, the engine is likely loose enough to handle 10w30 or even thicker. Depending what climate you are in, you might consider a thicker oil in the summer and then a slightly thinner oil in the winter. Best would be to take it back to Honda and let them do some diagnostics (leak down test) to determine how much cylinder leakage you have.
