Never thought I would have a question about an oil change. I’m going on a pretty lengthy trip that will probably total ~2,500 miles and leaving on Wednesday. My car is at just under 2k miles from the last oil change which I usually change every 3,500 or 4,000 miles. I plan on changing the oil out but should I do the filter as well? I tend to go with OEM filters but don’t have the time to go to a dealer and get one and would prefer not to use anything else. Which option would you choose?

1. Change oil, not the filter

2. Change oil and use a not OEM filter

3. Don’t change the oil because it’s a Subaru and I’m adding new oil all the time anyway.
