Long story short..
I have/acquired 6 quarts of this oil waiting to be used.. spring .. [wishful thinking..] is not so far away.. LOL
already itching to do spring time OCI's..

I am under the frame of mind that this oil is well aged, but is still very much usable. Unless someone has evidence to the contrary.

This oil would be definitely in spec for my 2002 TL
My question is should i use is it as a 100% OCI or cut with some of my newer PP SN and frankenbrew it.??

Thoughts?
thx
J.

As long as it is still sealed, it should be fine for a full OCI.

Many things get better with age. Yes, if it's sealed, its fine at 100%.

Thanks.. thats what i am a -touch- short on, .. confidence...
An OCI on the TL is 1 year, or about 10K km [ 6k miles ] or less, as it runs from March to December, typically..

In your opinion, will it last my usual OCI .. or short change it..??
thx again

No changes necessary, that OCI is fine for this oil.

I have purchased dozens of quarts of Amsoil over the years...

I have never done a 100% fill
