What is the Shelf life of Oils?
The performance properties of lubricants will remain intact for many years provided they are in protected storage and not exposed to severe high/low-temperature cycles and outside contamination. Generally, the simpler the oil formulation, the longer the oil will remain satisfactory. As a rule, the shelf life of lubricants is around 5 years, if stored correctly.
If I do not use all the engine oil when servicing my vehicle, what do I do with the leftover oil in the bottle, and how long does it last?
The left-over oil can be used for top-ups if required between services to keep the engine oil at the optimum level.
If not used for top-ups, it can be used for the next service and will last up to 5 years when pro perly stored in a cool, dark, dry environment with the lid fastened tightly.
