    VERY EASY - ONCE YOU KNOW THE TRICK ! ! !
    THERE'S A BUTTON ON THE PANEL THAT SHOWS YOU 'MONITORED SYSTEMS' OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT - WHEN YOU CYCLE TO OIL LIFE - HOLD THE BUTTON IN FOR LIKE 30 SECONDS & THE COMPUTER WILL RESET THE VALUE BACK TO 100% - YOU DON' T HAVE TO CHANGE OIL EVERYTIME THAT IT HITS "0" - I RESET MINE BACK TO 100% THEN CHANGE WHEN IT GOES DOWN TO 50% THE BEST TRICK IS TO USE BETTER OILS & THROW IN A QT. OF EXPENSIVE ($13 TO $16) DURA-LUBE OR SLICK 50 ONCE A YEAR.
    THE COSTS WILL PAY FOR THEMSELVES SEVERAL TIMES OVER - SAVE ON GAS USAGE PLUS CUT DOWN WEAR & TEAR ON THE ENGINE PARTS.
    YOU COULD GET SEVERAL HUNDRED THOUSAND MILES ON AN ENGINE IF YOU JUST TREAT IT LIKE IT WAS YOUR HEART ! ! NO DONUTS THOUGH ! !
