Do I Really Have To Change My Oil Every Year?




Quote:
Dear MOby,

I just saw your answer regards oil change. My manual says that I need to change oil every 3000 miles. But I only ride about 1000 miles per year (very short commute). By the book, I need to perform oil change every three years. Do I really need to change oil every year? Is it okay to change oil every three years, just because I don’t ride that much?

Thank you
Jay

PS: Just to make myself comfortable, I do oil change once a year.

At 1,000 miles per year, you probably don't even need oil.

Has Shell changed the formulation of Rotella T? Can it still be used in motorcycles?
