Fresh Oil?

I have a '01 Miata with 22,400 miles on the clock. I changed the oil (CastrolGTX) and filter (stock Miata) on 2-5-04 at 21,000 miles. It's about 40/60 city/highway driving. Seen like a waste to change the oil & filter with so few miles driven. Would you change the oil & filter now and WHY?? Thanks! Nick

That "3 month" rule is for people that drive 2 miles to work and back, every day, in the middle of an arctic winter. Is this you? If it's your 2nd car, and you break out the Miata only on nice days, and drive it a decent distance to evaporate contaminants, you can easily stretch to 6 months.
