True, but at the same time, 3000K of long distance highway doesn’t produce the same result as 3000k of stop and go short trips. So a good (but how does one know?) algorithm in a "oil life" monitor may makes sense (again, that's not what the "maintenance" light in Corolla is). It’s also the reason why alleged long distance synth oil like Mobil 1 “annual” 20K (really?) have small characters saying to respect manufacturer recommendation anyway and/or a 700 hours limitation to cover their behind. I for one go with Toyota’s recommendation in Canada (5K vs 10K in US…) as an oil change is, indeed, relatively cheap and quick.
