This is my wife's Jeep , she drives about 5 minutes to work each day , during the 8600 miles we took the vehicle on a 2000 miles round trip , the 0.5 fuel is a little concerning , possibly from long idling .

The oil life monitor was at 9% at the time of the oil change it looks like I'll be using this handy lil tool ..

The vehicle had 76251 miles on it at the time of the oil report...

I'd be curious to see what another lab says about the fuel percentage, but even considering that you have a really good report there!

The oil has a very positive effect on wear and TBN retention. Your opinion is like it's a disappointed when you're house A/C runs more efficient with advanced freon and uses 10% less energy.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

The fuel is nothing to worry about. Flashpoint still good, viscosity still good, wear still low. I’d say the oil life monitor is spot on. I love those Pentastar motors. One of the best engines they have ever produced.

The only thing that you have to complain about is the over conservatism of your IOLM.

I’d continue to use that brand oil and run it down to the “change oil” sign.
