A vehicle maintenance interval monitor allows selection of mileage intervals between servicing for a number of individual maintenance requirements. The monitor is computerized and battery powered. The monitor keeps track of the actual date and time. The miles traveled are computed by determining a change in the actual date and time and multiplying this time by a speed factor. When a service interval has been completed the monitor provides a suitable warning indication.
