I have a 'distance to oil change' read out on my Renault.

It's a petrol manual so I EOC a lot. When I first bought it, the change oil warning came on at around 3000km from new. I re-set it and it didn't come on again (oil changed at 15,000km) - I don't remember what it read prior to reset. There is no requirement for a low mileage break in oil change.

Now on my second oil fill, the distance to oil change with roughly 1000km down is reading 7000km to go (but it's falling far more rapidly than the distance I drive), so it seems set to come on at around 4000km.

15,000km is the factory oil change interval.

So it seems EOC is tricking the program, but oddly, it seems only on fresh oil.
