        Back in the day we used to just dump our oil in the storm drain before they started lying about climate change on the news.

    Steel drums work best. The way to find suitable containers for a substance is find out what industry uses and restrain the drive to be autspergic. You can buy oil by the drum and often save a shitload of money.

      Personally, I would recommend this.
      You can get used drums that contained oil/cooking oil pretty cheap in most areas, handle them with easy drum-handling dollys. Then just keep them dry, should last more or less forever.

        I bet you don't eat expired salt.

        He's referring to engine oil in plastic bottles, which does have a shelf-life of around 5 years.

        It's not the oil that "fails," it's the shitloads of additives in engine oil.
        The TBN can be depleted even while just sitting on the shelf in a plastic bottle.
        The old steel cans were better, and did offer a greater shelf-life for engine oil.

        The oil isn't ruined, the oil is fine and will continue to be fine for a very long time.
        There's very little effect to the oil itself, it just won't be a very good engine oil anymore.
        If you pull a 10+ year old plastic bottle of Valvoline off the shelf, you really shouldn't put it in your car.
        It's still oil, it's still lubricious, and it can still burn, it's just not a great engine oil anymore as a lot of the engine oil specific additives have degraded.

        If you want to store engine oil long-term, buy it in steel, leave it in the steel.
        If you want to store "crude" oil, steel.
        If you want your shit to last, there better be no moisture in it.
        That's about it.

        You're not storing unrefined crude, retard. Stop trying to have a point.

    Just use a cherry can. Even HDPE is made of oil and will soak after enough time. If you can store it well, you can use glass too. But it's glass. If you do, spray paint it black. Theres stuff that gets activated by just light and might even start polymerizing. And whatever you do, store it between 15 °C and 25 °C with no influence from weather
