^Again, I don't take issue with that at all. But I speculate that the sensor isn't the only criteria that changes the "number of miles" until an oil change display. I think time and other factors like mileage are a factor.

I would think that if the sensor noted that oil was deteriorated (and it would have to be very deteriorated under carve's assumption) and you put brand new oil in, the mileage would STILL say you needed an oil change right now, because of those other factors, and because until you reset the thing It will say that.
