    Does Yellow Rocket Fuel Go Bad

  I clean and lub my own Shimano Curado reels. After I clean the bearings, they spin very well. Then I add a little yellow rocket fuel and they do not spin half as much. I have had this bottle of rocket fuel for many years. Does it go bad over time?


I leaned to clean my reels from instructions I saw posted on this site about 10 years ago and from Connie's video. Ed

   You have to keep it oiled. from Funky  5/29/2012 4:27:42 PM
 LOL... sorry Ed... it may, but not in your lifetime. I would guess if they were spinning well dry, then you got too much oil in them. Rinse them again in lighter fluid and then one very small drop.

   just a thought from MikeF  6/1/2012 9:44:24 AM
 But since it's a mix of hydrocarbons couldn't the lighter parts of the mixture evaporate if left open?

 and most others are basically mineral oil of varying viscosities, so no, the oil itself can't go bad. As for the additives they put in it, who knows, since most of these folks seem to have never heard of a MSDS Sheet. I would think air, temp and UV would effect them over time. If kept closed, outta the sun and out of extreme temps, I think they would be OK for a long time.
