Blackstone commented on the physical properties of the oil being satisfactory at a normal oil change interval, so I think we can trust that Cummins and Nissan are justified in letting the BCM/ECM decide when to change the oil, provided that there aren't other issues occurring inside the engine such as a faulty injector or coolant leaks. But, the analysis should pick up those issues anyway.

Blackstone had a typo on the free text part. I had 9702 miles on the oil as reported on the top block of the report. The computer said I was overdue by 17 miles.
