i think its bogus, mine always goes way over. i just change it every 5k. i do mostly highway.
Based on that, the oil life monitor will show the need for an oil change at the same interval for synthetic oil as it would for mineral oil, since it is monitoring the operating conditions, not monitoring the oil condition.
Is that the case?
