Normally one year Mike is what the dealer states. However if the car only had 50 miles and then run & stored, hopefully with an ethanol 1 year fuel stabilizer in fuel, as long as there are no contaminants, I still drive for a while once back on the road if the oil is clean & then change it again.
I would say though I would start the vehicle once a week just to keep oil seals and rings lubed. Leaving a car for 6 months and no start is asking for seal problemos.
