Condition of analyzed oil (virgin)

I will be doing a VOA and UOA at the next OCI. I have about 1 qt of leftover oil from a 5 qt jug that I was going to use for the VOA. Would it be better to buy a fresh 1 qt to pour the VOA oil from, or am I good using the oil that's been in an opened (lid kept closed) 5 qt jug for a few months? Thanks.

I'm guessing the oxidation and moisture content might be slightly affected, although in RC you are pretty dry aren't you? That being said, I would think you would be OK doing a VOA from your on-hand. Even if it is affected more than I think, that would still give us a new data point.

But Pat, if he uses the oil that is on his hand, the skin oils and other contaminants will probably affect the results... [Big Grin]

It's all a moot point, as I can't squeeze out enough oil from my hands to fill Blackstone's container. If only I had Bilateral Palmer Hyper-hydrosis...

I've never known anyone with BPH-h either. [Big Grin]
