    Yeah, but i was going to mix some sea salt with it. Should do the job of preserving it a tad bit longer then the shelf life.

    I'd hate to think what that would do to your engine if you actually did that

    Sarcasm may not be an issue. He is driving a cit. Maybe 40l of top up oil is what he needs service to service

    I'll get back in my box now
    Fight for your opinions, but do not believe that they contain the whole truth, or the only truth.

    Nah, just let the oil filter take care of it
    Does salt dissolve in engine oil?

    Default 200 litre drums elf oil

    Certain car rental location in suburban Melbourne has numerous 200 litre drums of elf oil sitting in one of its garages. Not sure if the drums are empty or full, or what quality the oil is but the big blue drums with elf on them is pretty obvious

    This didnt come from me of course.

    At the risk of sounding like a bit of a broken record, I think you should stick to 5W40...

    There's easily obtainable Elf and Motul in the right spec for less than $70.
