As I said, the can has been opened

Also as I said, the oil is currently in its original *metal* container plus it is stored in a cupboard, so, obviously, it is not subject to light. If I stored it in a refrigerator, it also (obviously) would not be subject to light.
The small amount I keep on my counter for immediate use is consumed within two weeks. I don't think this results in any significant degradation.
Basically, my question(s) are about the effect of temperature on long term (e.g. - up to 12 months from date of purchase) storage of the oil and, secondarily, the effect of metal (again, over a 12 month period) on the taste of the oil.
