That's the reason engine oil recommendations give a milage or time expiration, 5,000 miles or 6 months sort of thing. Long term you can change the oil and not run the engine at all, like you're told to do when you prep a vehicle for specifically for storage. Ideally you'd change the fluids at the storage unit, so total running time on the fresh lube would be zero to maybe a couple of minutes.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
