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.
