Planned on changing it at 12K but at 11K I was presented the opportunity for a long road trip so I figured I would go for it. Seems to have turned out OK.

Note: toward the end of my last OCI I thought I noticed a bit of start-up noise and the oil light staying on a little longer than just a flash. Figured it was my mind playing tricks on me because it was almost time to change plus I was debating leaving the filter for another interval per the manual. I left the filter and in less than 400 miles I was back under there swapping it out; it was not my mind playing tricks on me. I believe the ADBV weakened or failed so I was getting dry starts after it sat overnight. Perhaps these dry starts added a bit of wear and my next report will be better.

Regarding the silicon: yes it is on the high side of OK but it seems to be in line with other civics.

Enjoy!

Very nice report! I am trying to decide my OCI. My last fill is in the signature. 4 miles one way commute (30-50 mph), plus a few miles during afternoon for the lunch.

At least 3 times, one way 10 miles highway (60-75 mph). sometimes idling in traffic..

What would the ideal OCI??

Very impressive report for 14k OCI, silicon is a little high.

Is this Trop Artic semi-syn or full syn ?

I thought Trop Artic was a semi-synthetic only.

Depends on the oil & driving conditions but on this synthetic blend oil 10k would be a sweet spot even if you get some random mildly severe interval.

Wow thanks for posting. I have a large stash of Trop Artic and I would have said these kind of OCI's were way too long for it. Still longer than I'd want to run it but I need to rethink my evaluation of it.

Thanks for posting this OP, we don't have near enough UOA's of everyday Joe kind of oils here IMO.

Another win for the Phillips 66 lubes! I use Kendall semi syn 5w20 and this gives me more re assurement that I have chosen a great oil smile Do you know what the major differences between Trop Arctic and Kendall are?

Kendall has a stronger add pack and is also the only 66 PCMO lube to use Titanium as far as I know.

All of the 66 lubes perform well though IMO, at $1.99 a quart the Trop Artic I buy is an absolute steal.

You pay too much! Since you are in the land of Ole Mizzou, orscheln's will put it on sale for $1.79 a few times a year in addition to their $1.99/qt sales.

Have not seen it lower than $1.99 at Orschelns in the last two years, that's where I buy it. Maybe prices vary.

Why do you hate that generation so much? I love the way the 2-door '01-'05 Civics look and drive.

I hate this generation of civics.
That being said 10k on this oil on the conservative side
and 12k on the liberal.
Since I hate this generation i would do 12k


Why do you hate that generation so much? I love the way the 2-door '01-'05 Civics look and drive.


88-00 civics had the double wishbone suspension, I owned an 00 civic till 320k, and the suspension "looked" almost new when sold, ride felt the same during the 10 years i owned it. In 05 a family member got a 05 civic which drove significantly worse especially while cornering it. This phenomenon was confirmed by my family members.

If I remember correctly 01-05 are one the lowest rated civics on kbb, especially among honda enthusiasts.
