Yo scotty! Am i just wasting my money changing my oil every 6 mos/4k-5k km rather than 8k-10k km/ once a year? I use aftermarket 5w30 oil in my honda already and vic oil filter? Will it harm my engine by not using honda genuine oil filter? I dont get enough sleep at night when the 6 mos arrive hehe am i changing my oil too soon??
10K kilometers should be fine not 10,000 miles. The factory recommended interval on my 94 VW Golf was 7500 miles but I went to 5000 after the warranty was done because it was easier to remember. I got well over 250,000 trouble free miles.
Change your oil every 5,000 miles and use a premium filter (doesn't have to be Honda). If you live in a severe environment or do a lot of city driving you may consider changing it more often.
