Has anyone figured you mileage per engine hour?
I changed my oil today and happen to notice the engine hours.....4460 miles and 129 engine hours.
That comes to 34.5 miles per hour.
It's true that a lot of my miles are from home to town and five of the 10 miles is 30 mph. The other 5 are at 55 mph but there are more than a few highway miles in there too. Was just curious if anyone else has checked theirs.
BTW..if you haven't changed you oil in the newer trucks you in for a thrill. They must have a 500 pound gorilla that puts those things on. You definitely need a filter wrench that is the metal strap type. No room for any other type to get in the space.

I've seen many, many threads on various forums about King Kong and his drain plug tightening talents. That is one busy monkey.

I tripped over the engine hours reading one day, but I forget where it is.

On the newer trucks it's in the engine status display along with oil temp, trans temp, coolant temp and such. Pretty neat to have easy access to all the engine info.

That's the EVIC. It's in my odometer somewhere. I don't know the sequence to get to it. Something like "Dance on your left foot, holding your right earlobe in your left hand during a full moon..." Kinda like removing the battery cables and touching them together while clicking your heels three times.
