Shabbos 44 – שבת מד

The Gemara tells us that even according to Rebbi Shimon, if the flame is burning out of a large container, the container is considered muktza even after the flame extinguishes since he doesn’t anticipate its availability on Shabbos.  Why is the leftover oil (from the small lamp) permitted once the flame is out, despite the fact that he probably expects it to be completely consumed on Shabbos?
