Montana owned, garaged, 3000 mile 2014 1/2 Camry 4 cyl.. What oil & change interval would you advise for seldom driven vehicle like my wife's. Its been getting 6 month changes but Toyota says 12 month changes. Ive used Mobil 1 changed at 200 miles and then every 6 months. Am I wasting my money ?

+1.....your using a quality top-shelf oil....so extending your OCI out to 12....or even 18 months, should be OK, and save you a few bucks as well.

With your cold Montana winters, I would be using M-1 0w20 AFE, and a Fram Tough Guard filter.

If you are not short tripping, you could even stretch it out to 2 years, imo.

There's no magic to that cheap oil filter.

I would use Napa Full Synthetic 0W-20 and change it once a year.

12 month changes with 0W20 (assuming that's what manual recommends) until it's out of powertrain warranty then extend it to 24 months.
