True Goo longevity

I'm putting True Goo in my tires because I absolutely positively detest flats. One question I've never seen answered anywhere is just how long True Goo will last in a tube. I know Slime is only good for a couple of years (if it works at all, which a lot of people say it doesn't).

trugoo = about 2 years

about the same as slime in my experience. 2 years.

TruGoo is a Colorado product which makes it my first choice.

If you do not use the bike for a long time these goops can congeal and cause a horribly out of balance wheel.
For a daily rider no big deal. For an occasional fun bike, not so good.
