How so? URL? If you want to go into the weeds.... What about the cost of engines that fail prematurely due to oil not sufficiently lubing? There is the re-manufacturing (or scrapping) cost that is incurred sooner than would have occurred if the oil had been changed more frequently. Somehow, I suspect the re-manufacturing/pre-mature scrapping cost far exceeds the cost of the lost oil in re-cycling.
