Alright so here's the latest report. OIL: M1 EP 5w-30 OIL is use for 8 months and 10,249 miles I ran 5w-30 on this fill to see if wear would decrease with the slightly thicker oil. The lab seems to confirm this @ 10k miles. Had the analysis been done at the same 7k interval as before with the 5w-20, i'm sure the wear would have been much less. The MM (Maintenance Minder) popped up at 6,900 miles, suggesting almost identical driving style/conditions vs the previous run. 1,400 miles later, i was at 0% oil life and the count went negative. The oil was ran for 3,400 miles past 15% (The recommended OCI by Honda.) Overall i think the oil did very well. I'm happy with the viscosity at the end of the run. 5w-20 seemed very thin at the end of the last OCI, IMO. I will continue to use 5w-30 in the Civic for better wear protection. I did not notice any MPG drop. Still ave 38MPG on the highway doing 80mph+ with 2 passengers. Current fill of Amsoil 0w-30 for a 15k run. Will re-sample without draining the oil and run it further if the lab backs it up.
