storage suitability of Castrol motor oils

The following statement concerns the storage suitability of Castrol motor oils.

Lubricants should be stored, frost-free in sealed, dry rooms, preferably with a constant ambient temperature. In the case of improper storage (excessive variation in temperature, or excessive humidity), "bundle respiration" can occur, causing the containers to take in humidity. All bundles are "liquid-tight", but not "gas-proof".

Humidity intake can lead to dilution, causing precipitation in the product. Oils in plastic bundles can grow old with prolonged direct sunlight (ultraviolet light).

The printed date on the bundle neck shows the day of production and not the expiry (decay) date!

With regard to material-appropriate storage, we recommend a maximum storage time of 3 years. (In specialist publications, a figure of 5 years has been known to have been quoted!)
