I'd disconnect the battery, fill the gas tank with premium, and drive it
for an hour before shutting it off that last time. Not necessarily in that
order. :)

Also check the tire pressures, make sure you've got your RADIO CODE, write
down your preset stations.

When you get back:

Turn the key on. Let it sit for a minute. Start it and let it idle relearn
for about 10 minutes.

While this is going on enter your radio code, and reset pinch-protection
on all the windows. Basically roll them down one at a time and hold the
button down when they reach the bottom for about 2 seconds, then the same
for when they're all the way up. This will reset auto up/down too. Set the
time and your presets.

You should be good to go...

As far as fuel treatment goes, I'm torn between using it and not. I can't
see a can of sta-bil doing anything productive over a period of 1-2
months. Audi cars can sit on the lots for a lot longer than that with a
solar window mount battery charger hooked up.
