I wait until June every year to get mine back on the road because that’s usually when they’ve finally swept up all the crap on the roads from winter. I’m going to check this time how much oil was burned as well. Forgot to do it last time. Curious because in the past I noticed occasional puffs of blue smoke on start up. I don’t bother putting fresh oil in before storage because typically I only put 500-800 km’s on the car each summer so it’s basically fresh anyway.Well I waited for Pennzoil ultra platinum 5w30 to go one sale, it did, so I changed the oil today. 7.56 liters went in last spring, around 7.5 liters came out (let it drain for an hour). i also checked the OLM before I reseted it. didn't budge. Was still at 16%. So now it's gonna sit till May, no starting it, cause everything I've read, that's the absolute worst thing to do. Better off just letting it sit.
Funny how the OLM in the Mustang doesn’t tell you that you need an oil change after 12 months but in my Explorer it tells me every 6 months. I’m changing it in my Explorer toady and I’ve only put 2200 km’s on since last change.
