Is my canola oil still okay to use?

Hive-Mind Foodies, I need your help! I bought a gallon jug of canola oil over the weekend and, by mistake, I left it in the trunk of my car for the last two days. During those two days we have had bright sunshine with temps in the high 80's-low 90's. So my question is this: Is that oil still safe to use in food preparation? I've always read that you should store oils in a cool, dark, place so that they don't spoil, but, I'd hate to throw away such a large amount of oil if it was still alright to use. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
