I was hunting through the shed in the weekend when I found an old 4L bottle of Castrol Syntrax 75W-90 with about 1.5L left in it. I had used in my old 5 speed manual Toyota Levin box at least 6 years ago if not longer. Do you think it's still alright to use? I've got a fresh 1L bottle I acquired I could put with it to add a bit of new. Or should I just bin it? Thanks

Sealed, unopened I'm sure it's fine. I've definitely seen seen oils on the shelf older than 6 years. Shake it up to make sure anything that's supposed to be in suspension is (hasn't settled out).

It's been opened (I used 2.5L from it way back when) but it had the lid on it while in storage

Hi Doug No I live in Auckland. Grew up in Northland. Dunedin is a bit cold for my liking but a nice place to visit & you can't beat that central Otago Pinot Noir Carl.
