What ever happen to Oil manufactures having those little stickers on there oil containers that would let you write your Odometer Kms on it when the next Oil change/ service was due?

I used to change my oil religiously ( and filters) every 5000 KM On the nissan , but i was also driving it regularly - but now i have my bike and my other small 4x4 , the Nissan mainly gets used for just 4x4 and towing the Jayco ( so works hard when its used)

So for the past few weeks i have been trying to get around to the oil change - Last oil change i wrote the Kms On the bypass filter .. - done a quick calculation ......... 16 000 KM since last oil change???....... im very upset with myself - If i would have had one of those stickers that used to come with OIl or Oil filters - then i would have stuck it in my window like i used to with the Kms when it was next due

so anyone on this forum that maybe from one of these oil companies - or Oil filter suppliers - maybe you should suggest to bring back the stickers to your product development department.

Hi Boc,
They must be still available.

My mechanic mate wacks a Rimula X sticker on the inside of the Troopy every time he does a service!

Penrite still do that - a little sticker you peel off the plastic oil container - well at least they did late last year when I did an oil change.

Hi Ozboc,

Cheers

When I would buy in bulk, a roll of stickers came with the oil, I still have half a roll which comes in handy as I still buy 20l drums, when they run out I will place a slip of paper with the info in the plastic holder.

Why not get a small booket 2" by 2" hard cover, and put all your service history in that, inc all the required part numbers for whatever your vehicle needs as you aquire them.

Had 2 black books for vehicles now :)
One book lasted 17 years daily driving, and still going.
