Default Oil question

I ordered a case of Redline oil back in October and it was lost in the mail till yesterday. My question is, is the oil still good? I hope that doesnt come off as a dumb question but wasnt sure if the possible heating up and cooling down from shipping it from Cali to Germany, back to Cali, to who knows where, and finally to me in Texas would have any effect on the quality of the oil. Thanks for any help.

The oil is still good. I've heard that oil has a shelf life of severals years. No problems with the oil having the car shipped to different locations either.

You can also email Redline. They are very good about getting back to customers with specific questions.
