My oil changes are done at 3,000 miles or 3 months whichever comes first, and I do all my own maintenanceI ALWAYS change at 3,000 miles. I do keep an eye on the OLM just to see how it is responding to my driving habits/conditions. In my old pick up, I did notice that it would react to things such as pulling loads, or driving through the mountains.
I do on my Honda Ridgeline, which has a similar Maintenance Minder System. I've gotten as little as 4500 miles to high of 5600 miles between oil changes. I also use Mobil1.Wow. I have to say I'm really supprised at the 3000 mile answers. The urban myth that won't die. Does anybody actually run out the full 100% on their OLM? I do, anywhere from 95-100%
What does the oil life monitor use for data points? RPM's and Oil Temp?
