My truck doesn't have an hourmeter, at least that I have been able to find in the information menu. New trucks I know have a total hours run and idle hours readouts on the vehicle information display. But my truck is a 2008. Going by my logged hours and miles, I average 60 mph, so for the 14,500 miles of this OCI, it would be about 240 hours. Then there is idle hours, which I can only generalize about. When I am hooking up to a trailer and doing pre-trip inspection in the yard, it is about 45 minutes of idling. As long the weather is not too hot or cold, I idle the engine about 30-45 minutes on an overnight. If the weather is too hot, I run the A/C to be comfortable. If the weather is too cold, I run the heater to be comfortable.
