Thanks for keep us informed. I was at an auction on Saturday and they had a couple of cases of old oil in the lineup. So old it was in the old cylindrical cardboard cans. It was not in my viscosity so I didn't even have to think about it...but I did think about this thread.

What brand? What did it end up at? You probably should have bought it, just from a collector standpoint, flip it and make some beer money if nothing else. Petroliana has a pretty good following, I've seen a single (full, unopened) quart in the old style cans of certain brands go for $75+ on that auction site. This case went for $61, not enough to retire on, but what the hell.

Funny you'd post that...it was Valvoline oil 40 wt in dairy cases, I think there were 12 qts in each of two cases, maybe 16. I can't tell you what it went for but that stuff was going cheap. I have disciplined myself to not bringing home stuff I don't need, can't use or can't move quickly, there was also about an 18" radial arm saw on a wheeled platform that went no bid, I could have had it for a buck.

I haven't changed the oil in my riding mower for 9 years. Oil was very black but engine ran smoothly. I decided to change it with 20 year old, brand name, dino oil I found on Kijiji (like CL) for a really cheap price. I figured old, clean oil is better than old, dirty oil. The "new" 5W-30 oil was sealed in their original quart containers. The oil looked good, smelled good, felt fine, pured smoothly and even tasted good so I used it. I'll let you know in a couple of years if I did any damage to my Kohler Comamnd 16 HP engine. So far ... so good after about 10 hours run tjme. No difference (good or bad) in how it runs or sounds.

Is that cool or what? If you've perused the BITOG website, you'll find some seriously OCD wackjobs. Not everyone, but they have a few. Post your results there, should be good for some entertainment. They may need counseling and therapy.

So put some sealed oil next to your prepper stash in the basement.

Thanks for the update Adam, that is pretty cool to see even if it is just out of curiosity.
