with apologies to Ogden Nash...
If you're feeling nostalgic, ExxonMobil still sells their gas turbine engine oil in cans. I don't know if it's because there's some additive in it that attacks plastic or if it's just because the volume sold doesn't justify a new packaging line.https://www.exxonmobil.com/en/aviation/knowledge-library/resources/port-allen-mobil-jet-oil-productionps: I am old enough to remember trying to use those pour funnels. But I always found it less messy to put a big funnel into the oil fill then pour the oil into the funnel.
Isn't that interesting, setting up a new production line but keeping the metal cans. I think metal oil cans, (or maybe by that time, cardboard with metal ends) in the automotive industry were phased out in the mid eighties. Thanks for the info!
