Yes really, almost 7 years.
Last oil change was 30 July 2010 @ 135,768km,
(12oct2010was@137,867km,,done2157km during first 3.5months after oil change.)
(the oil then should turned a bit brown,but it was clear like the picture shown of today)
I finally changed the oil on 14 April 2017 @ 138,020km. 6yrs. 8.5 mo.

Now, 8 Apr. 2018 @138,102km. 1 year after oil change, it looks like this. I have never seen oil so clear like this. in fact, in 7 years it has not changed, it look like this clear too.
My other cars,even milege less than svx,(80,000km)after change oil 5-600km,oil turns light brown already)
Even my other honda (20,000km),after change oil 2-300km,its turned light brown,not clear as this)
I just wonder why svx after 2157km(jul/2010-oct/2010) run,the oil still asclear as first put in)?

I can see it has been over-filled a little..

I will try clean throttle body myself to see.
