Can Honda oil filters last 6 years? #4755579

A Warm place to live in
My 2012 CRV had its last oil and filter change in mid2015. Dealer used Honda fully synthetic 0W-20 oil. I don't drive it much nowadays (sometimes 1-3 months in between trips) but when I do, trips last 1.5 hours of mixed type driving, hence the oil gets hot and doesn't get contaminated quickly. I've racked up only 7000 miles in 3 years and I'm thinking of an oil change soon using Mag1 synthetic oil. Honda does recommend oil filter changes every other oil change only. Does anyone here think I can get away with another 3 years on the current filter?

I wouldn't!
You're asking for trouble.

I would chance the filter myself.

So you are going to follow one Honda recommendation (oil filter every other oil change) but ignore another recommendation (the time/mileage factor)?

If you were doing 7,000 miles a year, then OK. 14,000 miles on a 6 year old filter, no thanks.
If you insist on doing the every other change, use a full synthetic media filter (Royal Purple, AMSOIL EA, Fram Ultra, Mobil 1, Wix Platinum, etc), cellulose/blend media can break down over time with use, synthetic media does not.

If you're going longer than a year, regardless of mileage, you MUST USE a synthetic media filter, a cellulose one is prone to disintegrating. Although there's really no reason one couldn't change the cellulose filter, top off the oil, and keep going as long as the oil is still OK-UOA would be the test for that.

That just isn't true.

The Napa/Wix oil filter on my branch chipper (Ford industrial 4-cyl) is probably 20 years old.
It is still fine.

I'll be cutting and posting soon.

I'd be afraid of the battery letting me down.

Curious, any proof on the disintegrating? An example/incident of cellulose base filter media being prone to disintegrating from sitting in motor oil and breaking down? Does it happen fairly often if there are enough incindents to be prone to that? That would be a huge liability for an oil filter maker. Not sure that is accurate.

Penny wise, dollar foolish. Why risk expensive equipment to save $5?

Just change the filter... but you may end up with one that has a manufacturers defect and it could fail prematurely.

Why chance it? Use a Fram Ultra.

My feeling is if you can't afford $30 a year you can't afford a car. Sell it.
