The oil life moniter looks at different parameters of usage to determine when to turn the light/message on. Type of oil has nothing to do with it.

A few years ago Pep Boys was clearancing out some Royal Purple 15-40 syn. I also now see Walmart is selling their store brand 15-40 syn.

I don't drive enough anymore to set off the oil minder. Now I just gotta go by time or it'll be years before a change.

Democrats: abolish ICE... free health care for illegals... make it easy for illegals who cross to stay... give illegals the right to vote... adamantly oppose building a secure border... create "sanctuary cities"... grant illegals in the country amnesty... welfare for illegals... tip off illegals about ICE raids.
And we're supposed to believe that Democrats aren't for open borders simply because they say so?
