I don't understand all of this in detail, but it's my understanding that motor oil, as the car is driven, develops acids and other baddies that are less than ideal for allowing to sit over the course of the winter. If you're changing your oil on a 3-5k miles regular basis, the effect may be pretty slight. Again, I don't know for sure. But, on recommendations that have come from this forum, I have started changing the oil just before putting her to bed for the winter. FWIW.
