How many of us have ever driven an Olds 98 Regency? 88-90? It had both the oil life monitor, when you reste it it would be at 100%... And it had the Average economy and instant iirc... Been a while for me... lol

My 95 LeSabre had an oil "monitor". The owners manual explained what it used to figure ou when to change the oil (No, I don't remember). Then it would throw a litght on the dash. To reset it, you had to push a button in the passenger footwell.

My grandma'* 89 Olds 98 (that I was driving all last week cause mine is in the tranny shop) has the trip computer, instant/average mileage, gallons used, extra guages, oil monitor, etc. thing. You can only see one bit of info at a time, but it was handy.

I think it said Regency on the outside, and Regency Brougham on the inner door panels (despite having no vinyl top).
