Keep it tightly sealed in a dark, cool place and it will last at least a couple years.

First,
Do not place it on concrete floors, use a shelve to store it.
Keep it sealed, cool, in a dark area and you may get 1 year to 1 1/2 years at the most.
Fuel will go bad over time.
I personally do not use fuel that is over 6 months old even if it is stored correctly
