Lead fuel question

I wrecked by car about 6 weeks ago and I was running 110 leaded. I came across 55 gallons and I don't plan on running it anymore. I plan on replacing my O2 sensors soon as well. Here's the thing, my car has been sitting at the shop and hasn't been started or driven more than a couple of times in the last 6 weeks. Do you think my (new)injectors are paying the price or anything else on my car with this fuel sitting around.

My understanding is that the leaded fuel should be no different while sitting in the tank.
We use unleaded because leaded fuel exhaust fumes are toxic as all hell and they ruin cats/o2 sensors faster.

I would think you would be fine since its been just sitting. But thats just my opinion

I doubt anything will happen, but if you could always drive it right to a gas station and top it off with unleaded to dilute it.
