1. 1. Does motor oil expire? How long does motor oil generally last?
Berlin motor oil does not have a documented expiration date. Under optimal conditions, the product is stable for an extended period of time and can be used as long as the American Petroleum Institute (API) rating on the label continues to meet or exceed the requirements listed in your owner’s manual. If the rating is still current, shake the container before use to blend any additives that may have settled.
2. Does motor oil ever wear out or does it just get dirty?
Motor oil breaks down with mileage and time – the oil additives weaken as the engine oil is used. Dirt can be a factor as well. Changing motor oil on a regular basis will eliminate these factors.
3. Are conventional motor oils natural, unprocessed products?
The base oils used in conventional motor oils come from a natural source and are then put through a hydrocarbon process in which the additives are blended.
