When I had a car that didn't have the monitor I would run regular oil to 5000 miles. Now that every car I own has a monitor I just go by that. Honestly though I think my monitor is a little on the safe side. Every time I've changed the oil when it said to the oil was still pretty golden.

Here'* a great write up of the OLM from a Cadillac website (a great site for Northstar info). It is pretty amazing how GM built the system. It uses engine RPM, ambient temperature, and other factors and plugs them into a formula to determine oil condition.
