a check valve at the end of the intake hose may be useful here, you really don't want to prime it more often than necessary.

as long as you're not pressurizing the oil, it shouldn't be a huge drag on any reasonable motor. just moving oil isn't too bad, assuming it isn't super thick, but once you start trying to pressurize it, effort required increases immensely.
