It was a bottle of quicksilver 2 cycle oil. I removed the label because I refil the bottle over and over from my gallon of cheap-o oil. [Smile] The 16 ounce bottle is alot easier to carry in my boat...

My collection is very small but will be adding more later. Right now I got: 1 gallon Mobil Delvac 1300 15W-40, 1 quart 76 10W-40, 1 quart Pennzoil High Mileage 10W-30 and about 1/2 quart Pennzoil 15W-40 Long Life. Picture below. Wow your oil shelf looks like a auto store.  -

I like to rearrange my oil shrine a lot, organizing the GC by batch numbers. [Smile]

TallPaul, I know I can stay married now. I copied your picture and whenever my wife thinks I'm too much of an oil junky I'll just show her your stash. Let her know its OK, I'm normal.

Yep, wife just doesn't understand. Thankfully she has chosen to ignore it so long as I keep it more or less to myself. I changed her oil a few weeks ago and she has no idea! [Big Grin] Just re-arrainged the stash and reviewed how the stock stacks up for all three vehicles. Consequently am doing a little bit of re-ballancing by returning a 5qt Maxlife 10w40 I bought a couple months ago for a 5 qt 10w30. Then I will have about two years worth for each vehicle. Of course all that will change in a month or so and I will re-arrange it again. Wow, takes me back to the mid 90s and flipping mutual funds every other month. [Eek!] At least with oil I can't lose my shirt. I do have a 16 MM fisheye. Have to dig the old SLR out someday and do some fancy work. Maybe some closeups too (have extension tubes), maybe some oil drips. [Freak]

My oil collection consists mostly of Shell Rotella Syn 5w-40 that I hoarded when there was a rumor that WalMart would no longer be selling it at the $12.88/gallon price. There is about 25 gallons there. In my kitchen I am starting a collection of cooking oils as well. In addition to the typical Mazola type corn oil, I have added safflower oil, peanut oil, canola oil, and olive oil.

I think if I had as much oil on had as you guys I'd change my oil every week! The only way I can make myself wait 5k is to not buy it until I need it!

 - If you look closely, you can tell I spare every expense! If one picks up a case in the ole shrine, they need to be careful: the UPCs are usually missing 'cuz I mailed them in! [Smile] Am having a hard time using the chevron supreme 5w30, so still have a lot of it. There's always something "more in season"... Christopher Reeve (rest his soul) would be proud, I have Superflo, Supergard, and Supertech! [Smile] Have almost a dozen filters too, but I keep them in a linen closet inside, away from dampness.
