I just came back from my local AutoZone. The 0w-30 shelf has been restocked with M01338. It had nothing but M05288 (including in the backroom) as recently as a month ago. Where is it coming from? The bottles look completely clean, not a hint of dust. Looks like they're trying to get rid of the old stock. [Confused] It's kinda sneaky the way they do that - moving the 4 year old oil to a busy store and then selling it at the regular prices!!!

Someone (maybe here) is returning their stash. I'm not sure I would want five year-old oil in my ride for 8K OCIs. I'm about to buy some GC, but if I saw both in my Auto Zone (5 year-old Green or Jan 06' Gold) -- I would buy the Gold. Just my opinion...

It's been discussed before...but the bottomline is that the oil should be fine if stored in a temperate climate (I store my oil in my basement).
