Did it under four years too!! Thought I would share this with everyone. I had to pull together the products that I have used most often and or religiously to get me to this milestone.
I'll sum it up by saying that for the last 250,000+ miles only Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0w20 and Redline 0w20 / 5w20 were all that was used. All my oil filters get primed with Lubegard Biotech. Only oil filters were the Fram Ultra and Napa Platinum at 15-20k mile intervals. I've been using the same Injen Nano filter for over 200,000 miles without even having to clean it. Running NGK Ruthenium sparkplugs with low/no ethanol. At around 150,000 I decided to use Castrol Transmax CVT and changed it every 10-15k. Used only PEA based fuel system cleaners from Redline and Gumout almost exclusively. Tires have only been Yokohama Avid Ascend with nitrogen. Outside and inside has been cleaned with Griots.
I'd like to thank BITOG too. This site has got some neat people on here with different backgrounds and ideas. Some have taught me a lot of things about cars, and others have taught me what not to do with my car. It's been an adventure for me and all my passengers aka friends and family!! Helped relatives and friends get to chemotherapy, work, school, bar, etc

Lastly the companies that made stuff that I used to get there..
Fkx Racing, Redline Oil, Pennzoil, Gumout, Borla, TanabeUsa, YokohamaTire, LUBEGARD, & Megan Racing.

This site along with high quality parts, fluids, and a reliable maintenance regime can take most cars a long way. Don't cheap out on quality material. Thank you to everyone @ bobistheoilguy.com

Geez. That’s 205 miles a day, every day for four years. To each his own, but I’ll pass on that.

I think early Nissan CVTs are so bad they give all CVT a bad name. Just wondering, the first time you started servicing your Honda CVT was 150k?
