This kid down the road has a Honda XR100 and it smoking pretty go. I would say it was well used.

So one day it quits in front of the house and I walk down to the road to see about him. It's locked up won't kick over. I ck oil and none to be found.

I tell him it's outta oil probably gall the piston.

He goes shoot and it had just quit smoking!

I think we are mixing stories here.

No oil change, but keep it topped off? That can last a real long time
No oil change, never pull the dipstick, run it out of oil? about 40k.

buddy of mine bought an 86 f-350 with a 351.....38,000 miles went in for his first oil change, only because the filter rotted and it was leaking.....ran it extremely hard the whole time he had it, sold it at 75k

The 10k/yearly oil change is part of the problem. It leads to complacency and rarely or never checking oil between service. It bit me one time on the wife's car. Finally got around to check the oil and it was over a qt low. I learned.

The Tundra melted down after only 72,000 miles.
He said he could have got more out of it if Toyota had used better oil at the factory.

Next time I told him trade in on new one at about 60,000 just to safe.

My experience was 40-60K before they grenaded (Fords). The customer would swear up and down that another party had done the oil changes (their "mechanic" brother in law, JiffyLube, Walmart, etc.), even though the factory oil filter (they had unique markings and were painted a different color than Motorcrafts) was still on the engine, and something resembling the La Brea tar pits was in the oil pan. When you told them that they would need to produce the oil change receipts, they'd get a deer in the headlights look every time.....

Try 16K on my wife's Range Rover.....A little too long for my comfort, but it's their recommendation and it's a lease, so I'm not going spend too much time worrying about it.

Toyota is actually only changing your oil every other time or 10k. In between they only check it. Found this out at 15k and blew my top with the service manager. Now I have 120k on my 2012 4Runner and still consider it new. Might trade on a 2020 Bronco though!

Thought it might be a trick question, motors as a general rule don't have oil engines on the other hand do use oil.

Then explain an "outboard motor", and it isn't a trolling motor.

My bad, we have the same thing on the gun forums.

"Cartridge vs. Bullet vs. Caliber
Given the vast differences between the terms “bullet,” “cartridge” and “caliber,” it’s amazing anyone with a modicum of experience would confuse them. And yet how many of us have been in a gun store when someone walked in looking for “a box of .30-’06 bullets” when he obviously wanted actual cartridges?
A “bullet” is merely the projectile that exits the barrel. Specifically, it’s a non-spherical chunk of lead, copper or other material intended for use in a rifled barrel. The bullet’s “caliber” is a numerical approximation of the bullet’s diameter, often expressed in millimeters or hundredths of an inch.
“Bullet” should not be used interchangeably with the term “cartridge” — a bullet is a mere component of it. Cartridges consist of the case, primer, propellant and projectile. In the case of rifles and handguns, the bullet is seated in the cartridge case. Cartridge is also an accurate term for any shotshell.
