Need some help! I see this Quart in dark and a lighter orange, is one older then the other? The real old ones... gallon, grease, ect seem to be lighter. This can is the lighter orange and i was wondering if it's worth a hundred.....May have to move to the other forum! I have seen them in a wide price range. Thanks, Owen

Those bring between $125 to $175 depending on condition. They are a Great Can.

Thanks for the info.....This can is full but that should make much difference, right? It's my first Oilzum item....the orange is starting to grow on me! I gave a hundred, so it's nice to see that i didn't over pay for a change!

I'm going to have to get one of those earlier cans as well. Cool graphics and the colors will lend themselves well into the Harley corner.

I find most guys prefer them empty. Very few prefer full in my dealings. I drain them all by drilling to small holes in the Top.

Better to drain from bottom as then cans be displayed in a rack and the holes are not visible.

Holes in the top decrease value.

Owen congrats on adding the Oilzum can to your Collection....

I've always enjoyed Oilzum's "Oswald the Chauffeur" logo. My very first can, 50 yrs ago, is/was a Oilzum can (still have it)... Someday I hope to own a can with the "Oilzum Kid" (also known as the "Bucktooth Boy") logo on it.....

If you drain from the bottom, it is always difficult to get all the Oil Residue out of the cans then the cans underneath get oily residue on the top and dust sticks to them. I know when I buy cans from others 99% of the time they are top drained. And I have bought 100's of cans over the past 7 years that I have been collecting quarts.

After draining the oil out of the can. I let the cans drain at an angle into a funnel for a day or two. I then spray some brake clean into the can and swish it around and then drain the can and let them sit on a newspaper for a day or two and then they are ready to display. Never have had a problem with them leaking onto other cans after being displayed.

Those two e-bay cans have different wording on the bottom.
Mine says "America's Finest Oil"
