No engine oil & filter change in 2021
on: 24 February, 2021, 03:20:58 PM
The 12 months came first ant according to the Honda book another oil & filter change is due. Well sod that, its only done 2,040 miles, it can wait until March 2022 or 8,000 miles whichever comes first and if that's March 2022 I'll only be changing the engine oil, not replacing the oil filter.

I know the engine oil is good for 8,000 miles or 12 months but it's also good for 2 years on the shelf and with just 2,040 miles on the clock the oil may as well have been on the shelf. Which is where I have 4L of Motul 5100 10W-40 4T semi synthetic engine oil and a HiFlo HF204 oil filter in readiness.

In exactly the same boat as you. Also did my oil change etc last March and have only done 1,600 miles since. Have decided not to change oil etc until either March next year if present low mileage continues  or much later this year if I  have actually done some proper mileage by then (e.g.  manage to get down to Spain/Portugal).
