Add gasoline stabilizer to a full tank.HLN A55 said:Leave it with me and I will take care of it!!
Ok, really though, you should put the car on jack stands to prevent flatspotting of the tires. Remove the battery completley.
I don't know what to say about the gas though.

Washed and wax the exterior. Cleaned the interior.
Changed the oil immediately prior to storing her.
Filled the gas tank and added an appropriate amount of fuel stabilizer (Stabil)
Over inflated the tires to avoid flat spotting. I also placed the tires on thick carpeting.
Added silica packs to the interior to avoid moisture/mildew.
Attached a battery charger (4 stage 'float' charger) to maintain the battery.
Covered all inlets (air, tailpipes, etc) as well as any opening I can find to prevent any critters from making my Z their summer cottage. Also added mothballs in the engine compartment, on and around the tires, and around the vehicle for the same reason (critters).
Cover with a good Car cover.
Been there, done that and got the T shirt. I just got back in April, I went with the 25th ID. The army stored my car with Pascha a private contractor, they kept my 02 Z in a tent out of the sunlight and they started and moved it once a month, to prevent the tires from getting flat spots. They also threw in some dehumidifier packets in the car and checked the fluids periodically, they did add some power steering fluid at one point.wagssd said:It appears I will be going to Afghanistain for a year. What is the best way to store my Z? I have a cover, a garage to keep it in and a battery tender. What about gasoline, tires etc. Any advice would be helpful.
