    Thought that this might be a thread of interest and maybe a way for some to keep track of their oil changes. Basically post the vehicle you changed the oil on, at what mileage and how long you go on the oil change. If you follow the oil life monitor (OLM) then post at what percent it was reading at the time of the change. Also what brand oil/weight and oil filter you use.

    Here is an example;

    2011 Acadia, 4.5 qts AMSOIL OE 5w-30 and an EaO18 oil filter, 5k miles with OLM reading 5%, miles on vehicle 19k.

    Or simpler

    2011 Acadia
    AMSOIL OE 5w-30
    EaO18 filter
    5k miles
    5% OLM
    19k total miles
