It's good. Was over a million years old when they harvested it, a couple more years ain't gonna matter.

One more tip, if the bottle of oil has never been opened, it is as good as the day that it was bottled.

Shake well to disperse any settling.

But if it has been opened, there is a slight chance that any moisture in the air that was let in has formed a drop or two of water, it will be settled to the bottom, so don't shake, and pour slowly, and don't drain it all out, leave the last few drops in the bottle.

This also applies to it if you suspect that it could have had an opening, and if the seal has been broken, possibly allowing many condensings of moisture.

I have a partial case of oil bought in the 80's, that I use one now and then from.

Like the others, I've never had any issues using old oil. I've never had any 2nd thoughts using opened [but sealed back up] oil months later. I'd be more concerned about low quality oil than old oil.
