What's the typical shelf-life of DOT4 Racing blue brake fluid?

I've had these cans for about 3 years in my garage and was going to use them for a brake flush and fluid refill. Are they still good to use or should I just but some more?

I don't know, but I would think an unopened can stored out of the sunlight would have a shelf life of at least a year. For a DE, I would probably run the old stuff from a sealed can, unless one of our engineer types can opine otherwise.:dunno:

i'd say if they're still sealed, you should be ok, once they're open, i'd consider them not much better off than if they were being used.

I usually buy small bottles of motul at the local motorcycle shop as i need it.
