How long is pre-mix good for?

I have five gallons worth of pre-mix from July that's been sitting in plastic gas jug in the garage. Will it be safe to use in my bike come spring time, or should it be reassigned to weed whacker duty?

I didn't realize it took a science degree to pour a bottle of Stabil.

The gas is stable, it's in a can on the floor.

I'll play it safe then, a few gallons isn't worth an engine.
