2 Years, Fram Oil Filter
I now live in a very big city. Traffic is hard. Parking can be a PITA. Mass transit and ubers are easy(ier) for most needs. To save money, I park in a lot which limits me to taking my car out to 6 times per month (or there is a penalty). So though I still love my 2007 Mazda3, and it runs well, I am driving it a lot less. Weekends mostly.
Wondering if I can leave a Fram Oil Filter on the car for 2 years? I have used the new improved Fram filter (silicon ADBV) that was introduced a couple of years ago.
The total miles in 2 years, would easily be under 10,000. In the last 8 months for example, I have driven 2,700 total miles. When I do drive, I generally get on a freeway, so the car does get up to 60+ MPH regularly.
PS. Please don't say, "just change it" - because you're a gearhead.
