I live in Los Angeles and so there's actually a great deal of freeway driving. My co-worker has the exact same Honda (same color, same model) she bought a month before me and she has driven the car 36K in the past year (unbelievable to me!). Her records indicate she's changing it with the oil life notification at about every 7k.

Freeway driving in LA is like driving in the street.

My oil was replaced 3 times in 12K miles as well. About every 4K miles, but I drive mostly on the street.

I do a lot of freeway travel, my first oil change hit the 15% mark at 10,500 miles...so it really is dependent on the type of driving.

Also I think throttle response and braking also play in. If you're hard on the gas pedal, the oil life will go down significantly. If you baby it around (which I do mostly) you'll get more life out of the engine. They used to call it "severe service" driving, which in LAX I could see happening.

If the highway driving is mostly stop and go, then for all intent and purposes it is city driving (but on the highway).
So may be what @freshflow is seeing is perfectly normal.
