Thank you. I just cannot understand how oil count went up to 5 when I have reset the computer only once.

The maintenance summary page in the service booklet says spark plug change every 3rd oil change ... no mention about 37k miles or 59k km. That's strange as to how there can be different service requirements for the S65 engine.

In fact when you really think about it S65 will do around the above number of miles/km when the computer-based 3rd engine oil change is due. So you're right in one way.

But I still can't get my head around the counter reading five. I read somewhere on TIS that the fuel consumption is factored in for the oil quality and change data. I will look for that piece of information and will post.
