It took me a couple of readings to udnerstand your question here. I believe you have put in two year old, unsealed but unused "Engine oil" in your car. First, if it was unsealed, was it unsealed in your presence (lying in your home unsealed for two years?) or was it the garage guy who told you that. If the garage guy told you that it could be refiltered used oil. The best thing I can suggest is to drain and refill which should not cost much and will give peace of mind. The other thing could be to take some drops on a filter paper (or clean tissue) and let it sit in a clean environment. If it evaporates quickly or spreads a lot it will indicate some water in the oil if you see sediments (however small) it could indicate refiltered oil. Hope this helps.

It does not make a difference if it was lying at home.

Considering it as about engine oil.You can check the engine oil condition by taking out few drops.If the thickness of oil is increased and there is odour formations then better get the engine oil changed.
