Do I Really Have To Change My Oil Every Year?

Dear MOby,

I just saw your answer regards oil change. My manual says that I need to change oil every 3000 miles. But I only ride about 1000 miles per year (very short commute). By the book, I need to perform oil change every three years. Do I really need to change oil every year? Is it okay to change oil every three years, just because I don’t ride that much?

Thank you

PS: Just to make myself comfortable, I do oil change once a year.

good choice with the yearly changes we are the same with our cars we change the tyres when they start to appear past their use by date not when worn out . Don't think I could live with myself if I rode only 1000miles a year, I can feel the horns starting to grow and need a fix of riding pleasure often Craig
