I'm in the camp with the end of season crowd. Also will add, when I do fire up the old girl, I go for a minimum ten mile, or so, run. I believe it not only charges the battery, but, it allows the engine to reach its full operating temp, thus, burns up all of that nasty stuff that "Z" and others have mentioned. However, I am guilty, at times, since I don't put thousands of miles on the engine, I may change the oil only and not the filter. Many times the oil still has its golden hue. If it weren't for the fact my DD runs 5W-30, two are diesel, and one is Mobile 1, I would recycle it in them.
