With no reference to the fuels age fuel stored as you describe will last many years. If there's no contamination in it probably fine to use.

I know guys that have used fuel that was 30 years old in the factory sealed cans. Not a single problem - in fact, as compared to modern fuels..... the 30 year old stuff runs better than the modern stuff being made.
