Figured I'd play it somewhat safe and change the oil around 5K here. I use the OEM (Japan/Toyo Roki) filter with the OEM 0W-20 oil. seems to be a nice range between the two. Heard from people that often 3K is too soon and 7.5K is too long... Guess what it really comes down to is the quality of oil & filter you use.

Given that Honda's oil filter quality tends to range depending who built the Honda filter (Filtech, Toyo, Tennex, etc.) 7.5K could be a good interval or a very bad one.

I THINK all the Insight oil filters are made by Honda's Japanese OEM suppliers (can anyone confirm?), which supposely are decent filters (review). The filter on the Civic Hybrid, in the other hand, is made by filtech which, supposedly is worse (!!!) than Fram filters.
