Your fuel should be ok if you store it correctly in a cool dry place,Make sure if you store it in your garage you keep it off the concrete floor just keep it on a shelf or put a piece of wood under it.

I keep mine on a hutch in my garage in winter because its always darn cold in there and it dont get much light. I had byrons sitting out on the hutch got 6 months + and it still has same color as new. I always just go and give a lil wable to mix it a bit idk if it does anything but it lets me know its not evaporating.
