Amsoil ASM 0w-20; 9,538 miles, '07 Accord 91,795 #3846852

Here is my sample of Amsoil SS 0w-20, one year in service. 80% Hwy/20% city. MM light calls for oil change around 6000 miles (it assumes conventional 5w-20). This was with a Fram Ultra filter. This oil does a nice job with my one year interval but I have changed out to M1 EP 0w-20 with M1 filter simply due to it being 1/2 the cost. I do not plan on trying to go longer than a 1 year OCI. This time next year we will see how M1 EP compares.

Try a valve clearance adjustment - you're getting near the milestone at which it is due.

Normally this car does not do a lot of short tripping but there were a lot for the last few weeks leading up to the sample date. In some cases it was turned on just to move its position in the driveway. I assume this is the reason for the increase in fuel.

Maybe just need to take it for a long drive before sampling? If it had a lot of idling before sampling that would increase the fuel numbers.

The wear numbers are excellent. TBN is still decent. Viscosity is good. I would not hesitate to run this oil again in your Accord. You could probably run it another 2-4K on top of this.

You could run it 15K miles easily.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

Even so, 1.8% seems high. Worth keeping an eye on this. The rest of it looks good though.

10-15k OCI's here are a slam dunk. But I would agree, 1 year-ish and I would change the oil regardless.
