My DIC says 28% oil life remaining. It's an '04, 7,900 miles. It's 320 miles one way (Half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, we're wearing sunglasses... oh wait, wrong movie!)
Opinions?

Yeah, if you go over by 100-200 miles your motor will explode.

I've never seen mine get that low. I usually change it before 50%. I know, I'm kinda stupid that way.

I'd change it. ;)

I am a Buckeye from Cincinnati. Hooaaa!
Spooky mine is at 23% and more than twice that distance to go to the fest. I guess I will stop at Walmart for a Mobil One fix.

Mines at 12%, but the oil was changed about 3000 miles ago, so I'm not worried, getting changed this week :)

I change mine every 3k miles. Pure synthetic Redline or Amsoil 15W30. Period. I ignore the DIC. I'd rather waste a few bucks than risk damaging an amazing engine. It also gives me piece of mind when the weather hits 110 degrees here in Texas...

I change mine sometimes just to have something to do, only if it is arround 1500-2000miles. Usually at 3k but I get board alot. :ity:

I'm with Norm on this. I think the lowest I let it go to was 38% and worked out to be about 4800 miles.

Change it, IMO.
