Re: What to do with old oil.....
The stuff is sixty-five million years old when they pump it out of the ground.
Thirty years in the can doesn't seem so bad. If this oil is from the era of viscosity problems, no, I wouldn't use it except on bicycle chains or hinge pins. If this were some other brand...I'd be fine with it.
Yes, I remember the Quaker State viscosity problems from decades ago. QS bought a bunch of engines. Somehow, everyone remembers they had problems, no-one thinks those problems were solved decades ago.
OTOH, I don't know how anyone could buy a Firestone tire after they killed so many people with the Firestone 500 (and then again with the Ford Exploders.) But then, I don't know how anyone could buy a Ford after the Pinto.
