    We recommend owners to change their oil every 3000 miles. ~ think on that.
     
  3. What kind of oil ???
    Really, I think it's better for a change of conventional oil every 3000 Km instead miles!

    Track the good people down, and give them some time to think over this, say, 10 years behind bars, for compromising security of millions of sold computers.

    Since were talking about changing oil...I change mine when my Accord tells me too which is around 9000 miles :) I think the Honda engineers know when their own engines need oil changes. You know old cars always said in the Manual to change oil every 7500 miles...till the oil companies got it in everyone's head that you have to change it every 3000 Miles. Think about that!

    Hence my point, no one follows what's recommended.

    on a side note, you can get the oil analysed by a lab. but better the oil you put in your car, the longer it can stay in your car. MobileOne for example is good in most cars for up to 10,000 miles give and take. it all depends on how you drive, it wears differently.
