Right, because engine hours (generally 5-10 km translates into one engine hour) were long gone for these tanks. They probably underwent many, many overhauls before they arrived to Leningrad. I suspect we rather talk about the wear and tear of the whole tank when it is more reasonable to scrap and replace it than repair it. How those German tanks were able survive 2 years in a world war beggars the imagination...!
