Engin oil expiration date

Recommended Posts

12 months ago I bought engine oil. I didn't use it at the time.

Is it OK to use it now?

Does oil have an expiration date?

No. Oil lasts forever, as long as container was tightly shut.

Thesedays depends on what is added to the oil , ie.detergents etc. and how stored.

Castrol say 5 years before deterioration if stored correctly

No. If possible I would like to avoid spending US$ 70 in buying oil.

It's actually a couple million years old. I would use it up without worrying if it was sealed in the container.

Just my luck, I bought some million year old oil and it expires next year.
