Oil Life Monitor Question


Recommended Posts

I have to add a quart of oil about every 1000 miles (about normal for a Northstar). The OLM tells me to change oil about every 6000 miles. At that rate, I add about 6 quarts of fresh oil to my 7 1/2 quart crankcase (nearly a complete oil change) between oil changes. I'm just curious, does the Oil Life Monitor take all of this into account?

The oil life monitor monitors your driving, i.e., stop and go, high speed, etc., not the condition of the oil so it doesn't know if you've added a quart or not.
