Its not how far, the cycle is a very specific way of driving a car under certain conditions to run the monitors. Everyday driving may never run a monitor depending on your driving habits. Thats why shops charge for this service to get the monitors to run.

That is my suggestion as they are familiar with the conditions of driving it.
