Can I send motor oil by post?

Was doing a garage clearout and found a brand new bottle (4L) Castrol Magantec 10-40 for my last car that I didn't get round to using so I'm thinking of selling on a popular auction site. So can I post this item or are there some rules about posting flammable liquids?!!!

We would have taken it off your hands but you live a bit too far from us.

i would imagine that you will be fine however, if it leaks or spills then you will have the ea (environmental agency) on your back and a fine as you won't have a oil transfer licence.

RM won't let you send anything that's flammable.

Yeah thats what i thought, but cant remember where (or even if i actually have) read something along these lines - not sending flammable liquids.

Why not still post but for local collection - could even try on here or local selling pages.

Surely motor oil isn't considered 'flammable'.... Wouldn't it kind of defeat the point if it was.
