Mine is a 2013 Ram 1500 with a Hemi, 1300 miles and 6 hours idle time. I do use the remote start, but have only had the truck for 11 days! The truck had about 250 miles on it when I bought it...

6,000 miles here and still 0 idle hours. I know it's idled a significant amount warming up in the winter weather. Oh well. Better being on the low end rather than the high end!

Hi All,

My question is does the oil change accumulator count or factor in the idle hours to the amount of run time left on the oil before a change is needed? If it does I think I'll go back to the 3000 mile oil and filter change and disregard the oil life meter since this would make it absolutely inaccurate.

Mine has 10.5k miles on it now and 0 idle hours. I start it up every morning and let it warm up for a few while I let the dog out before I drive to work.

I think you are confusing engine hrs with idle time. Theres no way you could Idle for 6 hrs in 1300 miles.

Unlikely. If you idled 10 minutes every morning from a remote start, it would only take 36 days of doing that. 72 days at 5 minutes each.

There is no way he would only have 6 engine hours and 1300 miles. Average speed over 200mph? I thought these trucks had a top speed governor.
