Clearing some space and found Lucas fuel additive and Red Line Water Wetter. The little bottles of Lucas look OK, the Red Line WW clear bottles are a little discolored(reddish brown). Found a lot of M1 15w50 and Kendall 10w40. The oil is easily at least 10 years old and I will donate to friends along with the Lucas and RL WW. Should I give my friends the Lucas FA and RL WW? The products will not be used in anything new or exotic but is there a possibility of problems with products this old. Don't want to screw my friends(they know how old). Thanks

Only you should decide that.

I've used open (and then capped AGAIN) oil older than 10 years. It doesn't "go bad" with time.

I would use the oil with no concerns (so long as stored with the cap on and not leaking), the Lucas FA and Water Wetter, I would just trash.

Everything listed was unopened, should have put that in my original post.
Thanks for the responses.

The water wetter should look like a pretty girly drink color so if it's got some brown going on I would toss it out asap
