I'm just curious what everyone else is using. Just a nice quick info of what you use.

Here's mine:

I use Mobil 1 Extended Performance, Mahle oil filter, around 15 percent MM (about 5,000 to 5500 miles).

Mobil 0w20 from Oct thru April and Mobil 5w20 the balance of the year usually with a Fram filter. I drive very little miles and change at 10% on maintenance minder. My wife grand Cherokee gets the same.

Mobil 1 5w20... either regular or EP.
Wix 51356, Purolator, or Honda A01 oil filter.
OCI is MM callout at 0% which normally seems to run in the 6500 to 7000 mile range. I often run over by a few miles to a few hundred miles.
Normally I rotate the tires at each OCI.
And check the brake slider pins too.

My '09 Ridgeline was serviced exclusively at Jiffy Lube by its original owner at MM intervals (about 8-10k miles for his driving in Arizona). So, Pennzoil Yellow Bottle or Formula Shell for the first 98k miles. I must say, at least through the oil fill hole, the engine looks absolutely spotless. In fact, it struck me how clean it looks inside. I look forward to the valve adjustment in another few thousand miles, and taking those cam covers off to see how clean this thing is.

I will continue the trend: Pennzoil Yellow Bottle (conventional) 5W-20, but at 5,000 mile intervals, and with a Honda OEM filter or a Fram Tough Guard filter.

Timidly:
Any brand-name dino oil on sale @ 5W-20 (Penz, QS, Valv, etc.)
+
Honda OEM (before the change to 02), Pure-One, Honda OEM for S2K (or similar high-end w/o cardboard end 'plates').
+
OCI @ MM, but..... frequently 200 to as much as 1000 miles past. :(

155K miles & counting.... expecting 300K w/o issues. Call me delinquent. :act060:

Typically 5w20 Mobil 1 Full Syn, although it's also had Pennzoil Platinum & Castrol Edge & any of a number of filters, Honda A01 & A02, Mobil M-110, Bosch 3323, K&N PS-1010, Purolator Pure One PL14610, Wix 57356.

MM to 0% plus between 25 & 250 miles. IMO, That's what the full synthetic is for. Typically 10-12 months, but with having multiple weeks of on call early this year & taking about 2-3 months of down time (End of Feb - Mid of May) this OCI will be about 15 months and at 10-15%, in the next couple of weekends. It just popped below 20% on the way home last weekend from DHS..

I typically use Mobil 1 Extended. Have used the Toyota TGMO synthetic as well as Pennzoil Platinum. All oils 0w-20. Filter? I stick with Purolator Premium Plus for the most part. Have used a Bosch.
I generally change the oil twice per year...regardless of miles driven. So, every six months with the OLM anywhere from 20-30% left.

Used to be what my dealer had for oil and the Honda filter, now it's what's on special. This last time I got Mag1 5w-20 off Amazon (can buy 6 bottles for the price of 5). Now that I work at O'Rielly's I'll be saving more.

Typically use Purolator Classic filter. If that's not available, I'll use the Fram or STP equivalent.

For oil, it varies between SuperTech 5W-20, Mobil Super 5000 5W-20 or Castrol 5W-20.

Purolator Classic $3 and change at Walmart.

Mobil 1 basic last 2 oil changes with 5w-30, runs better and feels better than with 5-20 at the OCI 7-8000 miles usually every 10-12 months

Regarding Honda filters P/Ns you only want to use the one ending in 'AO1'.

A02 was/is mfg. by Fram with paper end plates....things may have changed of recent, but I would stick with A01 if you are going Honda.
The ratings for those using Mahle filters is very favorable.

Castrol Synthetic 0-20 and any filter I can find also used Mobil 1 and Honda 02 filters (bought a box of them when I worked at a Honda motorcycle dealer). Changed at M.M. 15%.

You can get 5 of the Honda (Filtech) A01 filters for about $31 shipped.
