AW-46 Hydraulic Fluid Container Size

Is anyone aware of there being something smaller that 1 or 5 gallon aw-46 fluid in quart sizes? NAPA sold me 5 gallons, I have about 1 left but want to store it in quart size containers for ease of storage, or just buy some in 1 quart, but can't locate any.

Does anyone bring it with them to top off and store it in smaller containers (like what?), or are you able to buy quart sizes out there somewhere?

IMO the only reason to carry spare HYD oil is if you have a known leak. For instance, my HWH system hyd oil tank was low, I bought a qt of type A transmission oil-per the owners manual- added about a pint to the tank. If a hyd hose were to burst, it would require more oil than you could reasonable carry anyway. The remaining oil in the qt container has been in a basement bay since 2013; which reminds me to remove it. By now it is contaminated with moisture anyway, since it has been opened for years.

I don't think transmission/hydraulic fluid gets contaminated by just being opened. Brake fluid is hygroscopic and does attract moisture.

Oxygen causes oxidation in oil that otherwise doesn't happen in an unopened container, humidity condensates inside an opened container and can contaminate the entire hyd system if added. Of course that doesn't happen overnight, I was referring to my qt bottle that's been in the MH basement for 5 years.
