Down to my last 2 gallons of Pennzoil 15w-40 "Long Life". Acquired about 10 cases (40gal) for around .50/gal from a company I worked for that went bankrupt as we were clearing out the shops. We used to keep a couple of jugs in the trucks to top-up standby generators in various building we owned. Oil is probably around 15 y/o and predates the Shell takeover, but appears perfect when I pour it. I have been using it for years in my Honda and Yamaha bikes and the old '93 Buick. I really like the "Fun-L-Flo" jugs!

Closed jug, no moisture, what would make it go bad? The base was in the ground for millions of years. I'd run it in all my ope if i had it.

My father ran that oil exclusively in his Ford Econoline 460 V8 powered van since new in 1987 it would use 2 quarts of 10w30 every 3,000 miles when new. Then he switched to the Pen long life 15w40 and his consumsion went down to half a quart every 3k. He retired the truck with 325,000 miles still running great.

What a cool jug! I'd definitely run that. The pour spout sure is handy!

+1000 as I hand pumped out some 20 gallons of Citgo synblend 10w30 from his shop he closed down. Used many quarts of this in the 97' Bonneville with no ill effects

Must be pre Shell Pennzoil because when Shell bought them up they discontinued all the Pennzoil diesel oils in favor of their Rotella. I've never even seen Pennzoil diesel oil until now. Wonder how good it is, any UOA or VOA's on the stuff?

Keep those containers, they are or will be worth money.

Think about all the rustic stuff you see in BBQ places, Cracker Barrel, etc...

I'd clean them out and sell 'em. And I'd keep one for myself.
