Default Hobbico after-run oil

Hi!

Anyone know if Hobbico after-run oil will expire?
I have a full tube that should be about 10 years old, can I still use it?

Thank you!

Andre .

I think the Hobbico stuff is ATF.

Being that it's basically oil, it's already been sitting in the ground for how may million years.?

Use it, it'll be fine.

Like Mogman said, Automatic Transmission Fluid. Just a generic brand, whatever is cheapest. A lot cheaper than the Hobbico stuff.

A good recipe is Automatic Transmission Oil and Marvel Mystery oil for air tools. 50/50
