shimano oil shelf life?
#1
Hello dudes, iv had a large tub of shimano mineral oil sitting in the garage for about two years now. Has it got a shelf life? It has been opened and is about half full. Read on the net some people saying its good forever, and others saying its good for a year?

Shimano mineral oil should be ok so long as the lid was on tight. DOT fluid absorbs water so has a shorter shelf life.
