Hey Folks!

I wanted to snag an opinion on my most recent sample on a "new-to-me" '07 CR-V. The historical samples are more to the Right, but I'm most interested in the Left data column. I didn't change my oil at this 6,045 mile sample and am approaching 7,500 miles on that same Valvoline HM Syn 0w-20. I can sample at 7,500 miles, but was curious what everyone's thoughts were about changing at 7,500 or continuing until 8, 8.5, 9k, etc.

I travel mostly highway, with little stop and go (300ish miles) and slow off-road to access camping/climbing/mountain bike spots (<100 miles). I have a hitch mounted rack for a bicycle and have a roof rack that add a little drag, but don't tow anything. I'm also with a couple hundred pounds of gear at all times.

Thoughts??

I think 7500 should be fairly attainable. Beyond that, of course, we're looking at seeing what the UOA will tell you. You're still within grade and nothing looks to be at condemnation levels. Some may point out the TBN, but there are enough different ways of condemning the TBN that one might never get beyond 3000 miles. wink
