      How often would you change your oil if you only put a few hundred miles a year?

      Depends on your driving habits, climate, and how you store the truck.

      Do you drive a mile or two per day, every day, or does it sit most of the year, and get used for just a few long trips?

      A few hundred miles per year? I would do it once a year if you don't have condensation issues.

      I always drive a decent distance...never just a few miles.
      Used to change it every 4 months regardless, then every 6 months..now I am going on 9 months and the oil looks as clean as new oil...thinking every year might do it as I currently only have 310 miles since last change..plus it is Mobil 1

      TIA
