Correct .. actually less miles just as much
The thing is that if you are using bearing savers, allow for some grease to come out on the inside of your hub, this is normal and good
, your bearings will last for a good few years.
The advice re no grease input, may well be because some manufacturers like alko make sealed for life units. These worked ok for me for 3 years on the trot actually with regular immersions but not when hot, where other alkos didnt
They have to rely on polythene seals rotating on steel shells ,, and theres no chance in hell they are sealed for life ... draw you own conclusions
Oh and dont use moly grease
