The funny thing is just looking at the ok signal on your dash is the same as looking at nothing. A light will come on saying your 1/2 quart low. Looking at the OK signal is saying the oil level is somewhere between the full mark and 1/2 empty mark. However you don't know how far down it is without looking at your dipstick. I don't check my oil unless the light comes on (extremely rare) or the night before I'm heading out on a long trip. Other than that it just isn't necessary between oil changes.
