I know this is blasphemy...but I have enough nannies ( electronic and otherwise ) in my life so the idea of an OLM doesn't matter if my life is set by calendar schedule and not if there's 5% or 15% of oil life left. It just creates an anal episode where I have to wonder if I can redo my calendar to get 10% more oil life out of it and eff up something else that's not foreseen on that day.

I somewhat wish my DD Hyundai has a 2nd trip. I reset the 1st trip when filling the fuel tank. I would use the 2nd trip for oil changes. But not a big deal as I do 5k OCIs on the odo. I think if it had a OLM I probably wouldn't go by it.

I'm not against it. It'd be nice if it was programmable, though. One could program theirs to go off at 3k, 4k, 6.5k, or whatever OCI they decide to run. I know I prefer to do 5k or 10k OCI's on the basis that it's dirt simple to remember when to do it--just look at the odo's 1,000 mile digit. Otherwise I need to write it down and stick it on the windshield.

Ford already has this feature available on their cars. I believe you can set the OLM interval to a percentage of the base number.
