How long can a BGE live?

Is is possible to wear out a BGE? Got mine used and it's 4 years old.

    All the wear-out-able parts are re-place-able...

    Not in your lifetime, unless you subject to blunt-force-trauma.

    Mmmm 4 years that's getting pretty old, I have an EGG retirement community where you can house the EGG for its remaining days. I'll be reasonable only 2 Butts a month for the remainder of the EGG's lifespan. 

    Actually I expect that my EGG will outlast me be a good number of years!

    Happy 4th.

    The green coating has started to chip on mine...not sure if it will ultimately affect the lifespan or not??
