Re: shelf life of oil?
I think 4-5 years is quoted by the major motor oil producers. I've seen a used oil analysis of oil that had been sitting in the bike for 10 years (according to the owner) and had only a couple of hundred miles on it and it was still like new.
EDIT: If you do a Google search with the words 'shelf life motor oil' you should find information from the oil majors.
