Old Oil Question

In cleaning out my garage today, I came across a few quarts of older oil left over from prior purchases and cars I no longer have. Can anyone tell me if these quarts are still useful? 1. Quaker State 10W40 (SG, SF/CC, CD) 2. Mobil 10W30 (SG, SF/CC, CD) Kent Kester

My current vehicles are a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer (136,000 miles) and a 2001 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor (15,000 miles). I use Mobil 1 0W20 in each of these. Kent Kester

Would they be useable in an old (<1995) vehicle if either 10W30 or 10W40 was specified? Or, by virtue of their age, have these oils degenerated? Kent Kester

Xmas gift was a Craftsman lawn chipper/vac and it came with a bottle of 30W oil. It was SG. Wonder if that oil is really really old or they still make this stuff only for mowers etc?
