Yes, since cold starts are in the equation and if you keep an eye on the dipstick. Also keep in mind that non-synthetic also degrade with time, so if you use regular oil and only drive 5000 miles a year, change your oil once a year no matter what. So this DIC oil indicator is a guide not a rule. I use synthetic, at 60% (5000Kms)(3000miles)I change the filter and top up. At 20% oil life the car has 11000Kms(7000miles) and oil is dark, so I don't wait for 0%, I change oil and filter.
