Please! Guys! Were talking about a few months here not years!

Darren, If I were you I'd put some fuel stabilizer in the tank like Ken said, unhook the battery (the automatic battery maintainer is overkill IMO), stick her in the garage and call it a day... and you better not do this 'till AFTER you come to Rockingham for the Thanksgiving meet.

I went on deployment when I was in the military for SIX MONTHS and all I did was stick some fuel stablilzer in the tank - which was about half full, unhooked the battery and put a car cover on her. It started right up when I got back and the tires were fine. The only other things I did when I got back was to top the other half of the tank off with fresh gas and check the air in the tires.

You'll probably end up taking her out on one or two nice weekends over the winter anyway. I know you won't be able to resist. :D

Good advice!:) I have a car in the garage right now that might be there for a while. Like you said though, it's unlikely, if I see a decent day, it'll stay in the whole duration.

Is there anything special we should know about using Stabil? I've never used it. Maybe it's all self explanatory? If it's not, and there are any pointers, lemme know.

Angela I went to the Stabil web site and checked out the stuff the directions are pretty easy to understand ;)
