    Who the Hell cares. If I want to change evey 1or 2 thousand miles it’s my money and piece of mind even if it doesn’t make sense to the “experts”.

    Eh, do it when you want. One camp says there is special break in oil. I highly doubt it, but if it does, then there would be a lot of people with oil consumption problems (Stemming from changing oil early). On the other hand, GM had one heck of a time with their HFV6 when people changed it according to the oil life monitor - there was an unbelievable amount of sludge that built up. So bad, that there was a TSB that "Fixed" the sludge problem, by simply reprogramming the OLM to have people do more frequent changes.

    Another way to look at it: Too soon - you're wasting money. Too Late - you're causing damage to your bearings (In the extreme).

    I routinely put over 100k on my cars and usually change the oil every 6 months or 5,000 miles. (6 months because oils lose ph from not burning condensation off frequently enough).

    500, then 5,000 thereafter. Never had a problem. I start to get night sweats at 5,000. I can't imagine going to 7,500 or paying any attention to the maintenance minder.

    Yep, just turned over 315k miles. An Accord for my daily, which I bought new. I've got another Honda that just turned over 200k. Drove a couple other Hondas for 190k too. None of them ever saw an oil change past 7500 miles.

    My brother was a Honda tech for a lot of years... he once saw a 6th gen Accord come in with 30k miles which had never gotten an oil change. The sludge was incredible, and the engine was toast.
