OK, according to Amsoil it 2 X's the Mfg.'s (Honda) recommended oil change IF your using a Amsoil oil filter. If your not, change according to Honda service recommendations.

thanks, I just got me some and will load it and filter in the VTX for the summer months. But I am having a hard time believing that it will last in a car for 25,000 miles with only one incremental filter change. I am gonna try it on my G-35 (6 speed coupe) to see how it goes, cept I'll change it out at 20,000 and the filter at 10,000. I just hope it don't screw anything up.

I do an Amsoil oil change every 10k or 1 year with a filter change at 5k or 6 months, whichever comes first.

8k would be safe, I think the 10k is sufficient.

Thanks Bare. I wanted to say that but I was afraid of confusing the issue.

What I do is change the filter at 3,000 miles, top off the oil and then a new filter and oil change at 6,000 miles.
