When you think of huge drums of motor oil, you’re probably thinking of big companies leaking oil into the river or action movies where drums of oil explode. In reality drums of oil are not nearly as unstable. You can safely buy and store motor oil, without worrying that your whole garage will spontaneously go up in flame.
If you purchase bulk outboard motor oil for your boat, you can save a lot of money by buying an entire drum of oil, rather than small containers. Containers are tested prior to sale so that they do not leak. Oil can be stored for a long time in these drums without giving you any reason to worry.
