Got a case of this ancient stuff at Goodwill for 50 cents/quart. API says it went obolete in 1994. Is this a decent “flat tappet” lube for old muscle car engines? I’d use it in my garden equipment but they are all proper 2-strokes. Thanks

It would be good in something older-but I don't know that I would go further than 3000 miles on it. Usually, old stuff like this gets fed to the F-450 IDI, about 1 quart per 10-15 gallons.

A good reason to get yourself a new 4-stroke toy or two! I would definitely run that in OPE.

Evil Bay. You might be surprised how much people would pay to have this in their oil collection.

Neat. I think it would be cool to send a sample off for voa to look at the add pack. Probably be fine for a 3k interval in something 90's back.

It's probably usable… Just a shorter interval as mentioned.

Was your case 6 or 12 quarts?
As oldhp said above: Go ebay and contact every MOPAR related club you can think of.
Using it is smarter because you'll eliminate the chance of leakage during shipment.

Don't forget to shake it up before you pour it in crackmeup

Like oldhp said, I'd but it on ebay and hope an old Mopar fanatic comes along and offers you more than what you paid for it plus shipping.

I’m not sure there is a market for these. A guy here had a couple quarts of the same on Craig’s for many months and never sold. $2 a bottle. I’ll just give it to a buddy.

I wouldn't even use it in a lawnmower. I treat my grass cutters like my vehicle engines...... with good, current oil.

It would be good to use in a Honda manual transmission, and of course any engine made before the mid-90s

I agree with the poster who said to get a VOA done banana
