Old Autoglym HD Wax Consistency

I have a pot of the HD wax that is about 3 years old, its about 1/3rd full and extremely soft. Its almost like spreadable butter type softness. Its been a while since I used it so is that a normal consistency or has it "gone off"? Most threads I can find mention it going hard and cracking rather than soft and buttery!

I think that wax had a 12 month use within symbol on the base of the tub? Probably fine to still use, and I’m sure Autoglym will be along to clarify shortly.

That sounds as if something has gone wrong to me. My pot of a similar age was still really hard. You can see it dry out a little and perhaps crack on the surface, which I suspect is due to the single skinned pot. It still works just fine in that state. Butter soft is definitely not right though.

I had this happen last year on a very warm day and the wax had got warm - once it had cooled down, was back to normal being hard again - and still fine now
