Plus sitting in cold weather like you mention causes condensation.
Regular oil doesn't hold additives as long as synthetics.Oil will always be oil but the important additive package wears.Once exposed to combustion your oil will break down just sitting.
With synthetic oil you can go a year.
Oil changes aren't expensive.Why take a chance?
Even Amsoil doesn't recommend keep their oil in a vehicle for more than a year.

Once a year for me on the IS.
Only do 6-7K and use Amsoil.
The wife's RAV4 goes one year which is about 12-13K miles.
I own several cars that I only drive when it's nice out. What about if you only drive one of them lets say 500 miles per year. How often should you change the oil?

I would say once every other year and you should be good as long as you take care of it which I'm sure you do.

I will change the oil of my car when ever I find that it is needed.Mile meter will tell me because I keep the record of oil change.I think for oil change time does not stand as a reason .
