    Should be... ...performing a de-preservation run..

    They're starting the engine for the first time since it was "preserved" with oil for long term storage, or shipment.

    During preservation, fuel to the engine is shut-off while oil is turned-on. The engine runs on oil, displacing the fuel, and purging it from the engine.
