    I change my oil on all my brand new cars at 500 miles. Then I go every 3000. It's Just my thing. My toy cars get a once a year oil change since they usually only see 500-1000 miles a year.

    Awesome guys I appreciate the guidance. CR was purchased new btw. It sat in the showroom for 1 year before I purchased it last Feb. my concern was simply the age of the oil

    so glad I ran into this thread. My car was delivered with 6 miles on it. I dropped it off for PPF film and haven't gotten it back yet. I plan on putting it away for the winter as soon as I get it back....... it will probably have 50 miles on it by the time I get it home.

    I was starting to overthink the hell out of this oil change before winter storage topic. I'll let it sit with the factory oil till next spring.

    Yep! Good buddy of mine. W/0 notice his helpful thread (2nd of many articles to come) was pulled. He reported facts as known re: oil topics relating to our GT350.
    Was told he must pay mo. fee as a vendor.
    Avg. guy with substantial effort trying to further our understanding, knowledge, appreciation of car he loves AND knows well. Not a salesman .... a true car enthusiast with selfless, tireless work promoting the Ford community.

    Just Mustang6G extorting money from me for providing non-monetized content to the community. All my posts were pulled down without a single message from an administrator, just the below banner at the top of the site when logged in. Pretty sad that I am not selling a single thing but I have to pay to post on a forum. Shows a lot about the agenda of the people running this forum, it's about money not the community.

    That's what I was thinking just in case some shavings get past the filter after it gets broke in a bit but I'm not a mechanic. I did however create a new thread asking when to change, weight I should use and when I can first really go full throttle pedal to the floor

    That’s crazy, you should consider doing an oil change every 250 miles and 6 months to be double triple safe. I mean oil is so hygroscopic I wouldn’t trust it sitting in there really for more than 3-4 months in a humid environment. This is if you are using full synthetic obviously, bc if using mineral oil I would consider a more aggressive schedule, maybe every 1-4 weeks and 150 miles. It’s not like oil use is bad for the environment or anything, and hey, it’s cheap insurance! No need to listen to the on board computer they calculates revs and time and other factors to tell you precisely when to change the oil still with 25%+ safety margin build in.

    Not understanding why you would post such a jackass reply? I simply stated that I change the factory oil out of my brand new cars at 500 miles and then go every 3000. Our daily drivers only see 6000 miles a year since I work so close to home and the wife works from the house. You can spend your money how you wish and I'll do the same.

    Oh please with the "environmental harm" already.

    All the hot air spewed, does more damage to it. Then I could do if I dumped every oil change in my back yard.

    I think your sarcasm meter needs calibration.
