Guess I should explain: During the mid-70s fuel shortage, I bought 10-year-old diesel, mix it half-and-half and it ran just fine. Recently cranked up a truck that has sat for 10 years to move it... half a turn it cranked. It even aired up and the clutch and brakes were not locked. Granted, I store things with full fuel tanks so there’s no water in the diesel fuel to worry about.
The 3000 mile oil change was the debunked 50 years ago when oil’s were not near as good as they are today. How the need to change oil every year regardless of mileage is beyond me...you would think by now people would’ve wised up for a engine that works hard...Not driven a mile to church on Sundays.
If nothing else, for me, a lot of the advice given on here is only good for a good laugh. Your mileage may vary.
