I'm referring to your statement about why the computer doesn't adjust your time/mileage

I'm saying that the algorithm is telling you to change your oil (ie the mileage till service won't go up) when you put new oil in, despite the condition sensor saying the oil is ok.

And how are you an expert on what the oil condition sensor measures?

Aren't you speculating?
