12 Volt Feed Until Engine Starts

I want to illuminate the LED in my push button starter on ignition, but for it to then go out once the engine has started.
Can I simply double up on the feed to the oil warning light?

Cheers

That would be a simple solution yes. Added benefit that it would come on with the oil warning light in case of a problem!

that would (probably) work, but it's often used as an alternator 'sense' wire.
should be ok if using an led, but if lighting a bulb, it may cause problems.
I would use the oil light circuit
