Do an engine compression test you will probably find that the compression is low on a few cylinders due to sticking piston rings, due to the long no start period.


When you have sticking rings you get piston compression blow buy ,meaning you get compressed air into the crankcase causing oil to be pushed out the rear breather pipe .


To confirm this remove the oil filler cap with a running engine and see how much air is being forced out ,if a lot of air is coming out this will confirm this problem .
