Another run with Honda(COP made) full synthetic 0w-20. This is our short tripper 90% city vehicle though this time it did have a 1,000 mile highway trip in the mix. Honda OEM oil filter. MM light used to trip at the 6,000ish interval, this time it was actually only at 30%. Replaced with the same. Silicon is high again. There are no visible cracks or poor seals in the air filtration system--honestly I am over worrying about it. Air filter FWIW is Honda OEM, changing it has proven to not help.

This report looks good overall, not crazy about the fuel dilution though. The moly and boron numbers are low as well. The HGSB 0w20 had much higher moly and boron, so not sure what the deal is there. But wear looks good! Enjoy the ride smile

Try a different type of oil in same viscosity and do NOT change the air filter. Try not to open the AF box at all. See if silicon and fuel dilution change.

Nice report, but with a 2.3 TBN.....you should be able to do an additional 2000 miles or so.

It would be interesting to see if M-1 0w20 AFE....would be better than the Honda oil.better
