We were cleaning out some buildings at work, and they were getting rid of some old oils and fluids. They had a sealed bucket of Chevron Machine oil AW ISO 150, never been opened, fill date on sticker is June 28, 2000. I took it home being it was sealed and figured I could find some kind of use for it. what exactly is it used for?

Congratulations, you now have 5 gallons of hydraulic oil. If you have mobile or stationary hydraulic pumps you'll have a use for it.

Too bad it wasn't a bucket of Mobil Vactra No.1 / No.2. That stuff is great for a light oil.

Might be an easy $25.00 Craigslist sale (if advertised as high quality hydraulic fluid).
