An unopened contailer should store the oil until the container fails.
Any moisture which might get into an opened partially filled container which is capped will vaporize to steam and escape to the atmosphere the first time the truck reaches operating temperature. Water condensation commonly occurs in the normal startup shut down cycles while driving.

Next time you need oil, let me know. I can get if for you at the same Dealer/Preferred Customer price, without having you sign up as a member...
