I am sure everyone knows they are faking the standard oil bottles now. Without the little piece of plastic at the top. How can you tell the difference between them? Anyone seen the reproductions they are making and set them next to each other and compared?
Thanks

Here is a real vs Fake on
Labels are different
Bottom is thicker on real one
Tops are different
The easiest way to tell is the quality of the detail on the glass bottle. Look how crappy the reproduction looks next to the real one. WOW.
Now you know...

Originals were Quality made under Quality Management.
vs
Repops are Quantity made in Foreign country [Lack of QUALITY IS GOOD].

5 Quart Don had a thread on these a while back, where I mentioned the biggest difference I saw was the originals have the mottled background on the logo whereas the repros did not. A lot of quality issues with the repros for sure!
