The IOLM should really just be treated as a courtesy alert in case you're driving more severely than you realize. Otherwise just ignore it and change your oil every 7,500 (the lower end of the recommended normal range) or at every tire rotation if that suits you better.

There are stories on BITOG of Honda V6s sludging up even though the owner followed the onboard oil change alerts.
