oil changes

Post by wallis81+[ »

Just about to do the annual service on my 12/4 but because of the virus I have only done about 150 miles in the last 12 months. I always change the engine oil but this time I am wondering if I can leave the oil in for another year.It looks perfectly clean & I understand oil is not hydroscopic. I would value your opinions.

I wouldn’t be concerned leaving the oil change for one more year, it’s almost as good as fresh. Look at modern cars that we are told two year/20,000 mile intervals :o
