Re: Frequency of Changing Oil & Fuel Filters

A question I haven't seen answered is if using synthetic oil negates the issues of acids/corrosives in the oil. My gut says that issue will be present regardless of the oil as long as we have internal combustion engines so while the synthetics may give you a long time between changes you'll still need to change oil before winter storage/periods of non-use.
