Question:
How to Handle 20,000-Mile Motor Oil Drain Intervals When a Car is Driven Infrequently
Porsche recommends an extremely long drain interval of 20,000 miles for Mobil 1--which is great but since my 2006 911 is a "weekend car" it only gets 5-6,000 miles per year. Should I wait to change the oil at 20,000 miles or should I change it when 2 or 3 years are up?

Answer:
We recommend following the drain intervals listed in your owner's manual.  Mobil 1 would satisfy those longer drain intervals as long as the manufacturer makes that suggestion.
