Hello,

I currently have a 94 Volvo 850 that is in storage from April-December and then used as a winter car. It sees about 4000 miles a year in the winter and this winter I have decided to go two years on a fill of Rotella T6.
I am wondering if since the car was in storage so long does that have any negative effects on the oil itself? I normally try and take it out for a drive about once a month to two while in storage and get it up to operating temperature on the highway to burn off any possible condensation that may have accumulated.
I would like to be able to go two years on a fill but if storage has any ill effects on the oil I am not against changing it every season.

Since you're getting it out on the highway to burn things off, it's probably fine.

No ill effects. Oil would have to be nearly shot to be a poor storage medium with the fabled acids eating your stuff.
