    Yeah, I started the thread to compare miles to hours to see how much/long people let their trucks idle hense posting average speed. Obviously the lower average speed the more it idles. Thumbs Up



    EDIT: ALL Dodge trucks 03+ have hour meters. Maybe even older ones, not 100% sure.

    Nobody wants to play or you dont know your truck has a hidden hour meter :confused:?

    When you turn your key to the accessory possition push the odometer/trip needle for 10 seconds.

    The key has to be in the accessry position and then hold the trip needle for 10 seconds correct? Thats how it is on the newer ones anyways...

    So answer me this, why does Dodge (Cummin) require you to change oil based on miles vs hours? Industry standard for diesels is measure hour and service by hours. Ever see a odometer on a bulldozer?
