Sharing UOA on my Honda. Went to 20% on the MM. Happy with the results and next oil change I will go to 0% on the MM or 10k.

Wow TBN 5.1?? WAY underused. I'd bet 12k easy, probably 15k easy.


I use the overseas manual to choose my viscosity.

Color me jealous. Much nicer than my last Earthdreams V-6 UOA! I'd have no problem doing 10K OCI just to make it simple.

Impressive. I’m about to do an the first oil change in our 19 Pilot with the same engine with the same oil. The olm is at 20% at almost 5000 miles. My wife drives 30 miles one way to work and idles it 30 mins to 1.5 hours some days waiting to pick up our son.

I wonder if a W30 would give you single digit wear metals?

This is my wife's car and she is not hard on the car at all so I don't think it would make a significant difference. Now if she drove it like a scene out of the Fast and Furious, then a I would definitely consider W30. LOL

For less than 10k I'd use the XL line and save some $$$.

The $10 difference between the SS and XL line is minuscule IMO since I change the oil once a year. I save $$$ by doing my own oil changes so the cost difference between AMSOIL and other oil brands is irrelevant to me. I have been using Amsoil SS for 20+ years on all my vehicles and have had nothing but great results. Some say it's overkill and there are a lot of people on this forum that hate AMSOIL, but I could care less. It's a great oil and it works for me. To each it's own.

These types of comments always crack me up.

I know there are a lot of miserly, cheap, penny pinching members here on BITOG....
But there's also a lot of guy who love their car, love talking about oils and lube, and who don't bat an eye at spending an extra $10-20 for an oil change. Oil is a hobby, a passion, and an interest on this forum.....so there's going to be a fair share of folks on here who want to splurge and play around with fancy oils and UOA's.

I'm actually surprised how many guys on here are focused on saving the most money on an oil change. It's a $30k vehicle.....why be so focused on saving $7 twice a year on a maintenance item?? Is this how you live your whole life??

That’s not the part I don’t understand … IMO, if you don’t pony up for Amsoil SS … don’t get Amsoil at all …
Plenty other lubes that can match the lower grade stuff …

Really if it meets API spec just how much lower grade can it be? Closer than the average guy on BITOG is likely to admit.
