Recommended OCI on Mobil1 high mileage oil?

I had been using M1 EP on my Accord with 10k OCI. However, I switched to M1 HM since I saw some oil consumption.

I would like to know the recommended OCI on M1 HM, since the bottle doesn't mention any.

A UOA is the best way to tell.

Do you do city driving? Highway? Mixed? Car gets up to operating temp regularly?

EDIT: Just saw you're in Dallas so probably a yes on the last question

As said above, to many unknown variables in your driving. How much oil have you been usuing ? PCV valve ever been replaced, have you checked for leaks, etc. ? The Mobil 1 EP is rated for 15K between changes, the M1-HM should be able to do the 10K as Hondas are easy on oils. In my owners book it says to change the dino oil 10K under normal driving, but look into what mclasser says also. HOPE you are keeping up with your transmission fluid changes.

For what it's worth, I've been running Mobil 1 ever since at 7K miles or so. It's now nearing 90K miles. Just last week, I was checking my fluids, and topped off the oil a bit. Maybe 1/4 or less of a quart, from the remaining oil in the 5 gallon jug. It was still within range, near the upper 3/4, even before topping off.

I personally don't manage oil consumption, but between my oil change intervals of about 7K-9K, I never had to really top off. Now, if you find yourself needing to add oil frequently between your OCIs, then you need to check for leaks / burning. You can also tell by sniffing areas of concern.

I do mixed city/highway driving. I drive about 15k-20k miles every year. The car gets to operating temp regularly. Everything is big in Texas, so everything is far apart.

I didn't do a UOA since I am planning to go back to M1-EP.

I change the ATF every 20k miles, and the filter every 60k miles.

At 5k intervals he'd be better off with just a top grade conventional like VWB or PYB (or MS5k if he's a M1 fan). With EP and plenty of warmed-up driving 10k is easy in a healthy engine.

Still, an UOA is best in all cases to establish a baseline.

ima say 7500 without a UOA, since most UOAs i've seen on the 'ole interwebs indicate these cars are good until at least that with a lot being good for up to 10k miles or there abouts. since you have an i4, you'll want to check your oil weekly or every other week to watch for burning oil. you do NOT want to run that engine low on oil or you'll be replacing a stretched timing chain.

As noted above, as long as you keep the oil level at the proper level, there's no reason you can't go 10k.

M1 = Mobil1 motor oil
EP= Extended Performance
HM= High Mileage
UOA= Used Oil Analysis
ATF= Automatic Transmission Fluid
OCI= Oil Change Interval

From Drive Accord member JEL01:
VWB= Valvoline something or other
PYB= No idea
MS5k= yeah, no clue

From me!:
PBR= Pabst Blue Ribbon (If you ever WANT to get sick from drinking, brother- this is the stuff!)

You'll never find recommended OCI on a bottle. Different cars, different OCI. You can easily run 10K and the manual states 10K. but check the oil as stated. I run 7.5K, because it seems to be the point on the bell curve, when most oil viscosities start the downward turn. Still perfectly fine at 10K, just not like virgin oil. See my oil thread in my sig below.

RickBlaine: PBR is great if you want a wine headache in the morning, and are on a cheap budget!



What filter will you be running? If your filter can't handle the extra miles the oil won't do much good either.
