    Car question

    I have a car that is going to be sitting a lot this winter here in Massachusetts. I will probably only drive it 2x a week for a total of less than 10 miles. The car is in a covered outdoor garage, but I wanted to know what proactive steps I should take to keep it running well. This is the first winter I am not driving it everyday, so I want to make sure she stays in good health. So far, I added a little bit of Sta-bil to the tank since I'm only filling up once every 4-5 weeks. Let me know what other steps I should take. The battery is brand new.

    Might keep a battery tender on it anyway. You should be alright.

    new anti freeze, thinner oil if your not already running a 20 weight. I have a similar vehicle but its stored in the garage all winter. I drive it about once a week to once every two weeks. keep a tender on the battery especially if its outside on a timer. charge it for 4 hours at a time, 4 hours off thats what I do and it seems to work. in your neighborhood I would make it charge all night and then periodically charge it in the day time. You may want to start it and let it run every so often just to keep things lubed up for 10 mins.
