Default Would My honda accord 2006 4 cylinder go longer if I used the recommended 5w-20

conventional oil or synthetic? mobile one that can also be used. With conventional oil I change it every 4 k and with synthetic every 8k, I hear that even on synthetic oils ,that the addictives break down at 4-5 k and acid still attcks the engine. I have 112 000 kms on my car.

The recommended change interval on your car is every 6,000 miles or 10,000 kms using the standard oil. Unless you are doing heavy stop-and-go driving (such as a taxi service in a large city), towing heavy loads, or operating in very dusty conditions there's no reason to change your oil so often. You're not doing any harm, but you are wasting money. If you use synthetic oil you can safely add 50% the oil change interval once the warranty runs out. If you changed the filter every 6,000 miles or 10,000 kms, you could double the oil change interval and not worry.
