CAn anyone say they have gotten over 200K on dino oil?

Has anyone here just used conventional oil in their vehicle and can say they have gotten over 200k without any engine problems?

I just got off the phone with a buddy of mine who is the head of the service department at honda.

He told me his friend had over 700k on his engine using honda oil and honda filter.

He did a lot of traveling I guess. A salesperson. HIs honda was an accord 1999. SO you can see he put a tremendous amount of mileage on it. He did have to have the engine head gasket replaced after 600K but they said the engine was clean and no carbon deposits and no gum or anything anywhere.

He changed his oil every 3K.

SO this is an example of not needing any blended nor synthetic oil to extend the life of the engine I suppoe.

I ran dino oil on my 84 Accord for 18 years and made it to 309k and it was still running when I donated it. No engine work at all and most of the oil changes were between 4000 and 7000 miles.

Re: CAn anyone say they have gotten over 200K on dino oil?

Thanks for the replies. My 1995 Honda Civix EX has about 250K on it and I did two TIming bellt changes over its life. Other than that Manual TRans and ENgine still Purs like a cat. I used all different oils from Jiffy lube to Pit stop etc. Never used Honda Oil FIlters and never took it in for Honda Oil changes. My oil changes were between 3-5K sometimes as much as 7K. Still running

My 2001 Honda Civix EX has about 130K on it with 1 timing belt change. RUns great and same deal DIno oil and no Honda FIlters.

On my 2007 Civic SI I am not sure what to do since its a different animul. But as I said before this guy got almost 800K on it but did use a Honda FIlter and honda Dino oil.

Shoudl I stich to Dino oil and filter from Honda or go with Mobil 1 Extended Life 5w30 and either Mobile 1 Oil filter? Honda Oil Filter or K&N GOld Oil filter?

Re: CAn anyone say they have gotten over 200K on dino oil?

I use the durablend in my car, with valvoline oil filter. Change it every 3k except this time because I'm down at school and haven't been back since January. Also use a K&N air filter, works good

My dad uses durablend in all of our cars but my old car since it's too old to switch. Still funs fine at 83k on an 85' Cutlass, besides the tranny might be starting to slip, but it does still all year except maybe 1 day when I get it out.

Main thing is to just stick to one type and don't change, cause if I were to use synthetic in my cutlass, the additives in the oil would eat away and the grime that is actually keeping the seals from leaking.

Re: CAn anyone say they have gotten over 200K on dino oil?

I had a 93 chevy blazer that I didn't pay much attention to, and changed the oil with cheap dino oil most of the time. It was such a good car, and I sold it for 1000 bucks when it had 225,000 on it, and when I sold it, it ran so good and smooth, and it still does now. I also had a friend with a Geo Tracker with around 300,000 on it. We drove it so hard, and NEVER changed the oil or even checked the engine or transfer case for that matter. He sold it to one of my dads friends for 500 bucks and when he changed the oil there was about a tablespoon in the transfer case. Regardless, he changed it, and drove it another 50,000 miles, then sold it and I'm pretty sure it's still going.

the cars you beat on seem like the ones that always treat you the best.
