Out of date Olive Oil?

My mother yesterday gave me a 1 litre (opened and half used) bottle of Olive Oil that she doesn't use or want. Only my father used to use it.

I thanked her and took it home with me as I use Olive Oil all the time. Thing is, I checked the 'use by' date on the bottle and it says, Jan 2008.

So now I am wondering whether to chuck it out or not?

I don't know whether it would be sensible to use it. I am not sure what its actual life may be, past the manufacturers attempt to cover themselves... but I do need to take into account that it's already been opened.

Any advice would be most welcome! Thanks!
