  • buying mobil vacra #2 ????

    im out of "mobil vactra #2 " in my shop ! seems like all i can get "reasonably" is 5 gallon pails & they all state that the shelf life is 2-5 yrs ?? that 5 gallon bucket would last me 2 more life times ?? most places are out of 1 gallon jugs of it or overpriced ?? anybody got any ideas ?? i can buy a 5 gallon bucket locallt for $75.00 ?? maybe i ought to just do that ?? im in iowa

    I bought a quart of it for like $20 which included shipping off of ebay.

      It would be interesting to know what (if anything) actually degrades in it. I suspect the recommended shelf life is more for legal reasons than technical ones.

        I guess it depends on your definition of "reasonable".

        One gallon jugs for sale at McMaster for $28.

        BTW I called Mobil Industrial Lubricants Tech Support a few years back and asked this exact question, the answer was it has a shelf life of 10 years.

            Last year, before Enco disappeared and went pure MSC, I bought a gallon on one of their sales, free shipping too. Cost to the door? $13 I sure miss the old Enco !
            (Also bought a surface plate, 12x18, on sale, free shipping, something like $25 delivered)
