My personal experience is by seeing the cap of the container...
When you open it, it must have the plastic breaking sound 'cleak'
Then you see the aluminium foil cover on the lid.
The ori ones are 100% sealed with sticker all round...
The non ori ones you will find the aluminium sticker slightly opened on the side.
They siphone out the ori oil with the small gap, and then mix it with cheaper oil..
Probably 80% imi and 20 ori ratio.
So whenever the aluminium sticker is not 100% sealed, reject that tong of oil....
