As cjben said, Advance Auto has them for free. I write the mileage on the filter with a sharpee.

Oil change info AND More on your Phone!

Hey Guys,

I left a link to an oil change Sticker that you can put in your smartphone in a post on 06-09-2013 below. My Oil Change Information | We Save Your Oil Change Information for you.

Some folks told me that getting setup with it was a little difficult.

Well I think I have developed a better one now. It is super easy to get started. This one can keep up with your oil changes AND all your other maintenance services as well. And have it all available on your phone.

Please give me some feedback on it.

You can use it on your SmartPhone.Just Using your phone, go to: Vehicle Service Information | Keep your info on your Smartphone.

It is Free.

I made this little application to hold a list of ALL your Maintenance on your vehicle and have it in your smartphone.

Get it for FREE from my website:
http://vehicleservice.info

It is simple to use and is very flexible. The data is stored on your smartphone or it could be on a regular computer.
To put it on your phone go to the webpage (vehicleservice.info) on your phone.

TIP: once you are at the webpage that contains the app, you can "add to Homescreen" to make it easy to get to your data with just a click.

To put it on your desktop or laptop, go to that webpage from that device.


This is a screenshot of how your maintenance info will appear.

Looks just like the maintenance log I keep in the glove box of all my vehicles. I use a pencil and logsheet I make on Excel. Pretty low tech, but effective. I can't get my kids to use them, however, so maybe they'd get into a smartphone app.

The sticker issue was solved several years ago via Ebay - got blank stickers that work fine.

I have a little log book I keep in the glove box. I think the smartphone app has some merit but my issue is that when it comes time to switch phones I generally lose the app data stored in my phone. The whole point is to have some vehicle history but I switch phones every couple of years but tend to keep my vehicles forever.

I keep a log on each vehicle and I have generic stickers from amazon. You can 200 for $18.95.

With my new truck I have an address book sized notepad in the door. When I gas up, I write down the mileage, cost, how many gallons, and where I filled up. I'm also logging purchases for the truck; i.e. I just bought mudflaps F/R so that got logged in too. Toolbox, backrack, undercoating, and bedliner will also be logged before long.

I've never done this before, but then again I've never owned a new vehicle. 20 years from now I think it will be neat to have this and look back at what was done.

I have been using this cheap label maker on all my vehicles for many years.




It works for me since I hand calculate MPG's every tank fuel-up, I am always reminded when the next service is due.

I keep detailed logbooks of all vehicles in the garage to keep track of all maintenance and repairs.

I maintain 4 vehicles and use 3" x 3"post it notes for my reminders for all of them. I use a sharpie to write "next oil change" (NOC) and the next 4,000 mile increment along with the oil filter number and the amount of oil for each vehicle. I stick it to the back of the inspection sticker which is on the drivers side lower corner. It's in their face so they always have that constant reminder when driving. Been doing it since the post it notes became available in mid '80s!

I use three different techniques

1) Dry-erase marker on the top edge of the windshield (usually where those little stickers go)

2) Write it down in a little notepad that lives in the glovebox

3) Every 5k miles on the ODO. Makes it easy to remember.
