How long will 10 percent oil life last?
What happens if you go over oil change mileage?
Contrary to popular belief, no, synthetic oil will not damage your engine. However, thanks to constantly improving synthetic oil technology, you no longer have to worry about esters wreaking havoc on your old engine seals. Bottom line: synthetic oil is now completely safe for your older Honda Civic engine!
Can I put synthetic oil in my Honda Civic?
Newer generation Honda Civics after the ninth generation are optimized to run on synthetic oil, which means that they are designed to operate at high mileage before needing an oil change. Oil change prices are also cheaper for conventional oil compared to synthetic oil, but that’s because performance is lower.
Honda recommends getting your 2020 Honda Civic oil & filter changed every 3,000-5,000 miles for conventional oil. An oil change is one of the most basic and needed services for your car. Synthetic oil usually should be changed every 7,500 – 10,000 miles.
What does it mean when my car says 10 oil life?
You should get it changed at 15%, but it can be run at 5%. Speaking from personal experience, I get about 800-1000 miles for every 10% of oil ‘life’.
