My car is telling me it wants to go in for an oil change. While it's very insistent with its message, it's also not completely sure of itself. It says the "oil life" is at 15%, which to me means I have another 1500 miles to go. My car surprised me when I first read that it went 10,000 miles between oil changes. Actually it goes farther, because it is at 10,000 miles that it starts whispering about that 15% thing, which means the real number is closer to 12,000 miles. Cars used to ask for oil every 3,000 miles.
