How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

There is a doubt that affects many car owners: if the car runs a few kilometers in a year, should the frequency of oil change be the same?

If you are one of those who travel very little with your car, from three to four thousand kilometers a year, for example – and there are many drivers in this situation – you must also have that old oil change question.

Both the car manufacturer and the oil manufacturer recommend changing the engine oil every 10,000 kilometers or 12 months – whichever comes first.

So, after running a year, your odometer is marking 3,200 kilometers. You think:

– Has it been 12 months and I rode so little? Do I really have to change the engine oil or will I be throwing money in the trash?

Do you know why the oil has to be changed? Because it works on the basis of additives. These additives are the same as medicines: they expire, expire. So, change the oil, even if you have been running a lot or a little during those 12 months.
