Oil Change Message on EVIC @ about 2500 miles
 
It's been about 2500 miles and it's telling me its time for an oil change. Seems a little early especially since I'm using Mobil 1. Just curious, I'll change it soon anyways, but just wondering what you guys think.

I'll check that out. I thought the 08+ calculated it based on RPMs etc and not just mileage, so the option may not be there.

I though you had to choose between 3,000 or 6,000...?

Can you custom set it to whatever you want?

Im my 07 SRT8GC you can set it from 2000-6000 miles in 500 mile incraments. You just need to up it to 3K.

I don't believe that the oil life monitors in these new vehicles accurately calculate when someone should be changing their oil. Were motors any worse off before these systems came on them? I had to give my opinion there for a sec that's all...
