Umm...If your oil life indicator actually READS zero, you should have changed it AWHILE ago IMO. When was the last time you DID change it? (This is a pretty good feature which my GF could use as she ALWAYS waits TOO long between oil changes and WON'T take my advice on using Full Synthetic Oil ...even after I explained the features and benefits of it :::SIGH:::)

My mechanic tells me that car owners shouldn't rely Completely on Oil Life Monitor & should change Oil before it dips below ~20% or so- oterise you start to see really dirty oil- which couldn't be too good for the engine longevity- so short answer "change oil sooner than later".
