This is my mother's car. The bulk of her driving is to and from work which is ~25 miles of mostly highway cruising each way. Given how unremarkable these UOAs have been, I may not bother to sample it next time. On the other hand, it's currently running the new gas-to-liquid stuff from Pennzoil, so my curiosity may get the better of me. I guess we'll see in about 10 months. OLM: -243 Miles Oil Filter: Purolator PureONE PL14459 Air Filter: Purolator A26052 Previous oils (left to right): Pennzoil Platinum 0w20, Pennzoil Ultra 5w20 + LubroMoly MoS2, Pennzoil Ultra 5w20, Mobil 1 0w20, Factory Fill

I do see some slight differences with the Lubro Moly in terms of, +/- Moly, ^Calcium, ^Viscosity, ^Flash Point and ^TBN. Yeah, most Honda 4 cyl's are boring! I understand that you are going to use the GTL PP?

There are PLENTY of GM motors with extremely high miles. Metals shed differently if different motors and it doesn't necessarily correlate with longevity. Somebody always posts this GM [censored] and the facts don't support it.

Same here, I go 7500 on pen platiinum in the hyundai for warranty purposes. I'm sure it could go 10k.

Not only that, Subaru had lowered it for the '14s. Used to be 7500 miles as well.

Good engine with easy highway driving couples with good oil so the result is expected. With the same driving condition I would extend OCI to 1 year at around 14-15k miles. The factory filled had slightly higher metals but still way below average for break in at 10k miles.

That filter is long gone, but there is a Subaru Forester in the family with about 10k miles on it that will have its oil changed in the near future. It uses the same filter. I'll cut that one open if you're interested.
