I found about 3 gallons of Rotella T 15W-40 in my barn this weekend. Unopened, but at least 6 years old. Use it or recycle?

I believe that oil will be good in a sealed
container for many many years as no heat
is applied to it as oil only breaks down under
extremely hot conditions like in engines

Looking to purchase a Compact Tractor in 30-50 HP range.
Millions of years, right? :)
