Default How long do you think I could run a new Honda civic without an oil change before the engine fails?

It depends how much oil the car uses. It will eventually gunk up or dry out. No lube means extreme heat and friction. Probably 25k without adding oil and that engines done for. If you're trying to blow it just rev it up til its blown or keep it in first and try and go 60mph. Pour water in your oil.

Probably $35-$50k miles then all hell is going to break loose inside that engine.































Btw; Honda is not going to cover your engine in a warranty and give you a new one if you idiotically run it without ever changing the oil.
