Default Shelf life of coolant

Anyone know the shelf life of unopened coolant? Iím not sure if I should use the old stuff or go to the expense of buying new stock...

Unopened coolant has an indefinite shelf life

I'll go with BHW - the stuff should be as good as new for a long time. Stuff already in the system should be changed on a bi annual basis - I think. Regards Styria
