6 Year Old Oil.......

OK, I have a question for the knowledgeable crowd here. I have a new case of Motorex 10w/40 Top Speed 4T Synthetic oil that has never been opened since I bought it 5 1/2 years ago. My question......Is it still "good" and/or "safe" to use in my '13 696 after all this time??? Would you all use it or pitch it ???? The Kid

Nope
It will be shit. I'll dispose of it in a safe and regulated approved way and you just go buy a new bottle.

Let me know your address and I can help you without charging you anything

Always happy to help when you're in this situation

It's been sitting in the ground for a million years or so.

I'm guessing 6 more won't hurt.
