Re: Frequency of Changing Oil & Fuel Filters

Oil, even with 20 hours on it, can have acids and such in it. The thought is to not leave that sitting around in your engine over the winter, and certainly not for years.

At 250hours at your annual rate the oil would be old enough to demand you name it and assign it a berth.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
