Makes no difference!

I drove 2,000 miles on a round trip through France, all motorway apart from short sections each day to get to a hotel.

distance to next service still fell dramatically.
I am just starting the same trip again and I am hoping that the software upgrades that have been applied "fix" the problem.

I will post again when I get back.

Well maybe the software updates have changed something.

I started with a distance to next oil service of 3,400 miles. After a 300 mile drive on motorways it now reads 4,150 miles.
I guess it "likes" high speed driving and assumes I will be doing more of the same?

Interesting to see how it behaves on the rest of the trip.

I have now clocked a 1,000 to get to the Dordogne in France, that was all motorway apart from a few miles each day to get to a hotel.

I did not check on the way down but my mileage to next service is back to 3,400!!
It definitely likes long fast journeys.
