And if I'm 300 miles from home, at Watkins Glen or wherever, I don't have to worry about driving a few hundred miles home to my dealer with a low oil level. You can just take care of it then and there.

I can just see it: take an hour or more out of your day to drive your car to the dealer, pull in the service entrance, talk to your service advisor, have the valet whisk the car to the back for the oil top-up, then have the valet lay some rubber in the back as he comes back around to drop your car off. No thanks.
+1 Amen to that
