    new oil from the mill is completely different than draining from a vehicle that has heavy metals and other stuff in it..

    Yes it will rust. I had a finished project that I didn't get around to painting. It is stored under an overhang shed roof but still rusted within a few months.

    If it was me, I wouldn't let it set at work. I would take it all home Monday before someone beets me to it or the boss changes his mind.
