Castrol Edge FST with Titanium 10w-30. No make-up oil (ever). Honda F22C1 engine (stock/NA) WITH AFE PRO DRY air filter and Honda 15400-pcx004 oil filter. Shell V-Power 93 E10 fuel used mostly, with LE LX-2300 fuel additive added every 1000 miles. New DENSO OEM O2 sensors installed just after this fill went into service. I think it may have helped with fuel dilution issue on previous UOA. My driving style hadn't changed. I had planned to sell this car due to recent health issues. This UOA was to help document DIY maintenace for the prosective buyer, since the car has a 100k mile extended warranty. Unfortunately for the prospect buyer, I've decided to keep the car. It is good medicine!

Sorry about the misalignment. I did the best I could with WORD. Maybe someone can fix with better software. Thanks.

Looks like you could do a 1 yr oci no problem. But, I'm a bit Worried about whats in the LX2300 additive and the new 02 sensors - are those wide-band thin film style?

1 year was the plan. Was just trying to help out the prospective new owner. I'm also looking for things to do on my vehicles while I mend. The old original O2 sensors were getting pretty lazy according to my Actron CP9580. I've never heard of LX-2300 hurting O2 sensors. Have you?

Looks like I got the formatting fixed; check and see if everything lines up as you intended. Still needs some tuning up but I'm short on time; will try to return later and continue. Hope the attributes are at least close now. -MOD

5k OCI would be great. I don't drive the car that much in a year anymore though. I don't like to go that long without lifting the car and having a look around. If I take the time to jack it, something is getting drained and filled. It looks to me that the Edge FST 5w-30 and 10w-30 are the same product, just different labels. I've heard of oil companies doing this before.

Thank you Sir. Still some issues, but readable now.

Yes it does happen, although it is breaking the rules. One easy way to find out is to request a KV40 test with with the oil analysis.

No make-up oil I tried to make it a 1 year OCI, but had the car on jack stands to bleed the brakes in preparation for new pads. So the oil got drained too! 5 more quarts of FST 10W-30 went back in with a Honda 15400-PCX-004 oil filter.

How's your engine looking under the oil cap since running edge ti? Bright and shiny or does it have a discoloration to it?
