Way over kill for me.... from 1980 to approx 2005 I changed mine every July then in Oct when I put it away. Since I averaged 1,000 miles a season give or take there were many times I saved the oil and ran in one of oil burners (or changed it) since it was so clean. Since I started running it all season and still ave about the same. And those were the days of reg Castrol and Valvoline too so couldn't of afforded synthetic doing that.

It does say every year of 6,000 miles, whichever comes first, Soo once a year is in line with the recommended oil change intervals. :)
