Oil Analysis Results-Honda Semi Synthetic 5w-20

Got the results from Blackstone on the Pilot. I always use the minder for the Pilot so exact mileage is unknown but I would guess around 8k miles. Car is not driven everyday but does live a harder life idling at the bus stop and getting to soccer practice on time. Oil did very well and could have gone longer according to Blackstone. Used Honda OEM filter as well. Oil minder was at 30%. Car has 145k miles on it.




Overall Honda branded oil is rather good and the oil minder is pretty accurate as it pertains to Honda oil.

lookin good. my last uoa from blackstone was at 10k, and with 10% left on the MM

next go around, I'm gonna try 12500 miles and ignore the MM. this will conclude my oil testing ... moving forward I will stick to 7500 miles, due to personal pref. (after 7500 miles, the car starts to lose a little bit of its PEP. I'm willing to change my oil and filter sooner, for the sake of restoring some fun)

I agree, having fun is important. When I changed it I put what I had left of the Honda oil in but I think the next change I will just stick with what I can get at Wally World on sale. Castrol, Mobile One, Royal Purple. Heck I have been reading great things about Amazon basics oil and then I don't need to leave my house. I might just give that a go.

It is loosing a bit of coolant which they did take notice with the elevated sodium.
