Thanks for the alert Chaz.

Water is one of the worst (most damaging) contaminents in a lubricating oil.

Water with my lubricating oil (rum) works fine. *smile*
Makes you wonder how it (the water) got there and why it wasn't detected before packaging.

I'm not sure about 2ST Muskrat but some oils (brake fluid) do attract water (Hypo something or another)
Might be they left the hatch off the tanker hold or something *smiley4*
