Does anyone know how long I can let the oil sit before using it? I will be going on deployment for 6 months and I was wondering if the oil will keep that long or if I should not even bother.

If it's settled, filtered, de-watered, stored in an air tight container in a cool dark area and perhaps a few drops of a biocide added for good measure it should be fine for up to a year.

I second that but would also add that it should be a plastic container too.

Ok, so storing the oil for that long really isn't an option for me then. However, it would be ok in the truck so long as the wife is driving it on the weekends until all the oil is gone I suppose. Damn, its going to suck finding a new supplier...
