Fuel stabilizer and a fresh oil change before you park it. Unplug the battery too. If you like the tires on your car i recommend jacking it up on jack stands or the tires will get a flat spot. You can also put an open box of baking soda in the car to help absorb moisture. I also recommend going through a car wash that washes the under body to prevent it from rusting during the winter. Beyond that you should be good. I had my FC in storage for 4 years and every time I would visit my parents for X-mas, where it was stored, it cranked on every time.

Dead on. I basically do the same thing, besides that baking soda and car wash jig. That's pretty smart though, I think when I put my car in the garage for a couple of months I'm going to take these precautions. Thanks a lot bro. +1
