Last year when changing out the tranny fluid, I purchased the 2.5 gallon (never again) containers of Amsoil Universal Synthetic. I had about 2 gallons left over and would like to know if I should get rid of it, or keep using it to fill the spin-ons when I replace them. My concern is that I live in a coastal (humid) region and I am afraid the fluid is collecting moisture from the air. The cap is always on tight, but I did have to put a nail hole in the top to act as a vent when I was pouring it into the tranny/xfer case. The hole is covered tightly w/ duct tape so I don't think air/moisture can get in. Am I being too paranoid about the moisture, or should I quit using the extra fluid when doing spin-on changes? Thanks in advance for any advice/suggestions.

You're worrying way too much.If you have it sealed,no way moisture laden air is seeping in.If it makes you feel better,watch for any color discrepancies when you pour it slowly.

I bought a 5 gallon pail of castrol Transynd about 3+ years ago. I keep it sealed and when I use it looks good.
