Default OptiFuel previously opened?

Hi guys - specifically OPTIFUEL users...

I have received a 5 litre jug of OptiFuel, but the white tear-off strip below the cap
is missing. Also, the jug appears to have more fuel in it than the ' 5 litre FULL' sticker
indicates - by about 15mm.

Should I be worried about this and return it from whence it came? Worried it could be contaminated - who's to say it's not had water poured in it. Is there a test for this? What would it do if I used it in my heli and it had a small proportion of water in it?

Cheers

I got a brand new bottle handed to me on saturday by Andy Lever that was like that. I dont think the lid is a problem but never noticed the fuel level. The previous bottle i had did have the tear off strip on it as well.

I have 2 unopened containers, both have the tear off sealing strip, and both of them are above the mark on the label that says "full" 5L
