When I changed the oil at 10,000 intervals it hadn't used a drop and looked only slightly darker than new.
I'm the same, and this is the reason I use cheap conventional oils. The top end of my '01 Focus at 135K miles is pretty, and I've put nothing but Castrol GTX in it. That car is for sale, and I'm not sure how I could have justified more expensive oils in the end.
