Hello, I already have my flame suit on for this question...In my garage I have a rack with a couple hundred dollars worth of motor, gear, trans oil. Approximately a week ago my wife set a box of fruit from her family very near my oil. Long story short; the fruit rotted and made a mess. Nasty mold, juice, and gnats for days. Any compromise to the oil? Thanks

Not unless the gnats are big enough to unscrew the bottle caps!

Yes, all the lubricants are bad and must be discarded. I will dispose of it for free in an environmentally conscious way. PM me for an address to ship it to.

This -

rotten fruit juices can't get in if the oil isn't leaking out

You’re fine.

I’d clean the containers good with something to remove the sticky mess and continue on.

I'd worry about the mold, make sure and clean the bottles with some Clorox or vinegar diluted with water.
