I don't drive my 2008 RRSC during the winter as i am in Mexico. It is parked outdoors with a battery maintainer on it. Winter temperatures in my area are usually above freezing. Last winter I had my brother start it up once a month and let it warm up. Was thinking of just letting it sit all winter and then pulling the fuel pump relay in April to crank the engine to circulate oil before starting it. A bit worried about some internal rusting if I did this.
Any suggestions on what to do? I am using Mobil 1 and it is fresh. Thanks

Truly needs to be driven at least more than 20 miles. Not good to just start it every now and then.

Cold oil going through hot metal is like an ice cold Cola on a hot summer day. You get water condensation forming in not only the engine but transmission as well. It has to be driven long enough to evaporate the moisture in the fluids.
