Morning, guys.

I have a slightly neurotic tech question for you guys. Out of laziness and the fact that I only drove my 85 Carrera some 1500 miles last summer, I skipped the oil change. Since then she has been hibernating the last six months. Now I have the yearly MOT this week and I have negotiated a valve check with a Porsche tech in about a month (obviously with an oil change).

I want to drive her this coming month before the valve job. Should I:

1. Change the oil this week and fill her up with some cheap stuff to avoid driving with two and a half years of old oil for a month and then change for a better quality at the valve job, or

2. Just drive this month with the old oil (SWEPCO 306)?

I know, how neurotic is that..
