I can get a 6 gallon box of qsgb for a great price. Should I be concerned about the addatives falling out of suspension? Not sure if I can safely shake 6 gallons of oil.

Bay boxes FTW. I bought my first (VML 5w30) about a month ago and used it in about a week.

Just store it on its side for a while. Roll it over for a while. Stand it upside down for a while. Practice the log roll on it while on carpet. Etc.

I wonder if the cardboard has a shelf life like the old paper cans.

The box is there to protect the plastic bag inside of it. I've seen them in shops. If you're really concerned just shake it before using. Personally I wouldn't care about it since its 6 gallons of oil and not a 1 quart bottle. You may damage it by rolling it if you go that route..

As long as it does not freeze, the likelihood of any of the chemistry separating is very unlikely. The add-pak arrives at the blender as an oil and goes right into the mix of base oils. Unless it's an Ester oil, it should be fine smile

Tip the box upside down when not using it, then the day before you do use it flip it back over

Put it down on the floor flat on its back and push and pull it repeatedly.

+ 1 .Light movement occasionally will suffice.

Just like Marco said light movement is good. I buy My Eneos 5W20 in a 6 gallon box.
