Has anyone seen an indication from the oil change monitor system?
GREAT question! I have seen this asked/discussed on the forum several times and have yet to hear ANYONE get the "time to change your oil" message. I wont be waiting for it! I have a hard time NOT changing it once it turns black which over the years (with a blend) is about 5000 miles. I'm going full syn on the next change with the thought of running it for 7,500 - 10K.
