But Stark said Honda is the only manufacturer he knows that's using special break-in oil. The take-away? If there are any special break-in recommendations from the manufacturer, follow them. And consider analyzing the oil at 3,000 miles.
Honda would be an exception not the rule, hence why I said that pretty much there is no special break in oil anymore. I didn't say it was 100% of the time.
