I contacted Shell maybe 20 years ago asking about shelf life for transmission oil. Was Dino, not syn. I was told 5 years. A close friend stored a case of Mobil 1 oil in his garage on the cement floor a number of years ago. He lived in an area where temps went well below freezing in the Winter. When I was visiting we opened a bottle. It was sludge! Oil was at least 5 yrs old. True story!
