Oil life seems a bit short

Has anyone else noticed the oil life seems to be a bit low? I’ve just hit 1,700 miles and my oil life is down to 62%. That seems extremely low for one a new car and two a diesel.

That doesn’t seem right. I am nearly at 3000 miles and at 84%. I did do a very smooth break in process.

My breakin has all 90% city miles (25-45 mph) and a trip to eastern Washington (200 miles) with no towing.

That does seem remarkably low and I wonder if something is off with your sensor. I know it can fluctuate based upon your driving habits.

Goto the gear screen on the dash, and then to the Advanced tab, goto Vehicle, then goto the oil life reset and it will show you the percentage.

Haven't checked but you should be able to change the distance between changes in the setup screen, If you change the distance between changes the % will change also

I am using the FordPass app on my iPhone for remote starts as well as the app provides DTE (Distance to Empty), Vehicle Location (I suppose this would come in super handy if anyone stole the truck and you could tell the Police exactly where the truck is for recovery and handcuffing the grand theft auto person), Tire Pressure (PSI), Oil Life % remaining, and any Scheduled Starts.

I currently have ~1,350 miles on mine with 86% oil life remaining.
