Oil Change Interval
I realize there has been many threads started regarding how many miles you should get between oil changes and of course if you should have a catch can or not but....
My question is regarding oil change intervals when you DON'T reach 3,000 miles within 6 months.
I understand with normal mineral based oils you should probably change the oil every 6 months due to break down of the oil from gasoline blow bye and / or moisture condensation within the oil system. But what about the synthetic oils? Do these follow the same 6 month change interval, regardless of mileage?
I am asking as I know little about the synthetic oils other than that they cost more and provide better lubrication.
Anyway, give me your thoughts :-)
