What is the shelf life of motor oil?
They typically have a shelf life of four to five years.
It appears from my limited research that it depends how it is stored, not too hot and not too cold it will be okay for years if it is in the original sealed container. Some companies will only guarantee it for two to five years on the shelf but others the web say that if it is shook well to remix the additives in the bottle then they haven't any problems. Don't store it any…
While not an expert, most sources that I have found point to shelf life of opened and properly stored olive oil to be at 12 to 18 months. Remember to keep it tightly sealed and in a cool dark location. To increase shelf live especially in warm climates refrigeration will greatly extent shelf life. As ice particles will form in the oil, remember to bring it to room temperature before decanting to smaller container.
