You are smart to change your oil every year even if you put in only 5k on your car.Will be doing my 2nd oil change in the next couple of weeks (10K) before we embark on a 2 week 3000+ mile road trip. Just bought Castrol Edge Titanium and Mobil 1 filter at Autozone for $36. Have a new Fumoto valve in hand and will be installing as well this time around. First oil change at 5K (June 2017) when the car was about 8 months old just prior to driving from the west coast to NY. After that, historically I usually only change my oil once a year. We are not daily drivers, but more weekend and road trip warriors. Since June of last year, have put less than 5K on the car and that includes, the cross country drive. Rotated the tires last week...I always do that every 5K.
