What is the shelf life of engine oil?

Oils do have a shelf life. Typically, in unopened containers we expect oils to last for 5 years. If you’re in any doubt as to how long something has been standing, you can check the physical appearance of the oil as you pour it into a clear container. If the oil is cloudy to look at or smells stronger than you’d expect; if there is significant sediment build up or if the oil has separated into layers it might not perform as well in your vehicle as originally intended by the manufacturer.
