Very informative article. I’ve heard members on the FJ Cruiser forum say the same thing about the 0W-20 being too thin and using a slightly thicker oil. I will experiment with different viscosities to see what results I get. Maybe in combination with a VCM Muzzler or S-VCM controller I will have some luck.
The bummer is right when I acquired the vehicle, it was still under the 8 year warranty coverage for this problem. However, I’ve always had problems with dealers honoring warranties and attributing what they find to a “warranty issue.” Even with this excessive oil consumption warranty, Honda will only diagnose it if you have an active misfire code for fouled plugs, then they do a software update and proceed from there.
