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
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.
