Does oil go off?

Different type of oil. Now based on poly isobutene rather than normal lube oil base stock. Designed to burn very cleanly. Still doesn't go off though.

Well that answers the question I've been asking myself about why I'm seeing (and hearing and smelling) two strokes back on the road. BSA bantam anyone?

Do check and report back, I asked a Morris agent and it was more expensive than Morris online, but that was a car parts shop rather than a agricultural agent.



Senior moment.....

classic marine was £58+vat for 25 litres so about 20 quid cheaper than I could find online.

It was the (morris) super tractor oil that was 47+vat which is why I was there....

Morris Golden Film is £60 inc VAT for 25L at TFM in Penkridge, a short walk from the Staffs and Worcs, though best to take a trolley for the oil! The boxes of broken biscuits were very good last time too.

I have no connection with TFM other than I buy my oil (and biscuits) there.  I do wonder why its so expensive elsewhere.....
