    I understand that engine oil in an open container or sitting inside of an inactive engine for a year or so, should be changed....But what about seales, unopened and "new" bottles of oil that are a few years old?
    I have several 5 quart jugs of synthetic Mobil 1 for my vehicles. They are about 18 months old. Tecently,a self proclaimed oil expert told me that I should not use it.
    O disagree. But to be honest, I'm now a little worried.
    I never gave fresh, new, sealed bottles of oil a second thought.

    The topic of oil is like tyres and religion. Everyone will proclaim to be an expert, whatever they may or may not know.

    I would use it without a second thought.

    Unused and in an air-tight sealed container is perfectly fine to store for that time. As long as it's stored inside and not in direct sunlight.
