    The CEO light hasn't came on yet in mine. When it does, it usually means I have about 1K miles to go before it hits 5K. The light should be getting close to coming on. :dunno:

    My wife's CR-V just threw the "Please change my oil light" Seems like hers goes a long time between changes, but she does a lot of highway driving.

    My Miata doesn't have a light, nor does it rack up the miles so I usually change it once a year.

    The Ram has asked for two changes in the year I owned it. First time was right after purchase. Bought all the stuff, pulled the dipstick and the oil looked so brand new I figured the dealer must have changed it and never reset the computer. So I just reset the light and drove it until it came back, don't recall how many miles it was.

    Why did you switch the GMC to 0w-30?

    Holy crap Nick I didn't mean to leave you hanging like that.

    I switched to 0w30 because I like how it works in the Nissan.

    It's not Amsoil but for a truck that sits a lot it's hard to justify the price.
