I have about a gallon of Rotella 15W-40 left over from changing the oil on 4 tractors-I'll keep it for top off oil in the event that I need it over the next year or so. I also have about 1/2 gallon of combined leftover oil from the oil changes on 4 vehicles. Again, just in case I need to top something off I'll keep it around until the next oil change.

At the next oil changes I'll dump these leftovers in with the used oil and toss it on the fire the next time I burn yard waste.

I don't keep a large "stash" of oil or fluids. If I want to invest in oil, I'll do so through an energy related mutual fund where I'll get a far better return on my money.

I mean even if you could, the API rating would be like SY by the time you were that deep into your then old SN stock and the year would be 2076.

First of all it is important to note that oil really has no shelf life. Blackstone has tested oils from the 1960s that still retained the additive packs and so if SN oil remains on the shelf for 10 years I personally do not see this as an issue (in my case it would not be there that long though). Speaking for myself, nearly all of the oil that I have cost less than 70% of the full retail price with some of it being FAR (the Spirax was not, but that is a different story). So in essence, I save money in the long run by buying oil when it is cheap or free. I have only started this in the past year or so but have built up my stash very quickly. The other thing that I do on a regular basis is "share" my good fortune with others so there are some donations that happen from my stash as well.

If we got the deep discounts and FAR deals that can be had south of the border, I would likely have to reconsider my stash stance. As it is right now it's not difficult for me to plan in advance and purchase sales for the next OCIs.

Keep in mind the most beautiful women are a lot more maintenance over the course of 1000 nights which even an unlimited oil stash can't solve.


So tell me what you see here:

...today I bought 3 jugs of my all time favorite, Synpower. I think this is a sickness. I will probably exchange the remaining stash for all Synpower. Its what I used most before I joined BITOG.

Guys, 15-20 quarts of oil is "extra", not really a stash.

Really? I have exactly one spare quart of GTX, which is what I call my "extra oil". If I had three or four jugs on-hand I would definitely consider that to be my stash. A mere pittance compared to some of you guys, but still a stash if you ask me.

i bought 30 quarts of oil on black friday weekend and 40 quarts for my dad. i had a stash of probably more than 40 quarts already. i've got quaker state, castrol gtx, pennzoil, peak synthetic, and shell. i'll probably stop buying next year because the price/rebate goes up $1-2 every year.

I have enough oil to last both of our cars for over a year. Between my wifes car being driven 35-40k and mine 17-20k, I'd say I have a stash. Not as much as some of you, but it's a stash nonetheless.
