I often ask myself whether I really need to change the oil in Spring. Sometime it was just changed in fall.this is really stupid, but have to ask...
My car is rarely driven. I had the oil done last year around this time (Agip 10W40)
since then, i've probably put 200 miles, tops. its been in winter storage, and just came out yesterday. so, obviously, i'll need to change the oil again, ASAP, but how bad is it to drive it now?
Experts say that if car has been in storage for a year, drive it for about 30min then change oil & filter. Reason being that there could have been moisture condensation while stored.
In my case, car is usually stored for only 3 or 4 months and in a dry place. I don't change oil right away, but do change it once a year.
My view is - Don't worry about driving the car until you can get oil changed.
