Delayed Oil Change

2775 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  MLJJ
Hello fellow Porsche drivers,
I’m getting the itch for a drive and the weather is getting nice by us. Unfortunately, the nearest dealer as well as the respected service shops are all closed due to the Coronavirus. I put my car away last fall without changing the oil thinking I’d have it changed in the spring. How bad would it be to drive my Boxster without changing the oil for a while? Put about 4500 miles on it last season and I don’t track it, but I do drive aggressively on the backroads.

Can anyone explain why the UK oil change interval is double that of the U.S.?
I had the same question a while back. Turns out the oil (Mobil One as I recall) is blended differently and apparently has a longer life. It cannot be bought in the U.S.
