so you'd rather trust your eyes (that I'm sure are calibrated to judge actual contamination of oil, not just its "dirty look") over a system designed by engineers for the sole purpose of telling you if your oil is good or not?

gm is re-programming many of the v6 engine ecm's to make the oil change light come on sooner because of all the problems these engines are having with oil issues
define cheap oil.

you talking regular dino oil vs synthetic? the system works with both types of oil.
