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

I'd be interested to see what a UOA would be at 7,500 mile before going further. I change the oil in my CRV at 7,500 miles even though the MM says I have 40% left.

I take it that the 47 ppm for iron is a typo, in the Havoline synthetic sample?

At 7500 miles my Odyssey is nearing 5-10% How are you still at 40% with that many miles?

That would mean you'd be near 15K miles when hitting 5-10% mark. I doubt Honda allocates that many miles for their OCI.

Same here,
I have a 2016 Honda 2.4l and do OCI at 7500mi...MM still shows 40-50% life left. Think it has to do with the fact that I do all rural driving + I hit 7500 miles every five months.

I used to drive a 2010 Honda Element (of Failure) frequently as a company vehicle for work and we would have all the oil changes performed at a local Valvoline Instant oil change. We ran the basic oil change, white bottle conventional, and would frequently elapse 8000-9000 miles before the oil life monitor would remind whoever was driving it that it was due for its next oil change. Even at that kind of mileage the oil was STILL very clean looking with just a darker golden hue to it.
That vehicle was driven 95% highway/interstate to and from customers within the Michigan, Indiana, Ohio region.

1. Honda’s K24A8 engines are very robustly engineered
2. Honda’s K24A8 engines are VERY easy on oil
3. Proves that modern conventional formulations are up to the task of providing acceptable lubrication even at that kind of drain interval given those driving conditions. (Your results may vary).
