a little late to store properly...

It just snowed and its cold and i dont wanna get her wet or the underbelly full of slush and sand... roads are like an inch of ice....looks like forecast isnt gonna get better....i still have 3/4 of a tank of premium and was wondering if i can siphon gas out of this car or does it have a screen in the way like most new vehicles? or would it be a big deal if i pour in the fuel stabilizer now and add that 1/4 of a tank and just let it run for a bit?

also, it has amsoil synthetic in it now, just changed two-three months ago with only 500 miles on the oil, at the most. should be fine??

and can i connect the battery tender directly to the battery, leaving the battery connected to the car and just leave the tender running the whole winter?

Thanks!!

and yes, you can connect the battery tender directly to it.

There are many different opinions on storage, from mild to wild on this forum.

well since winter started real early this year, probly from now to april....i think i'll just throw a tarp under it. take a little pressure off the suspension, max tire pressure, and fill up the tank as well as some stabilizer.

I might as well just pull the battery out instead of leaving it on a tender that long?

should i start it once in a while or fog it? or F*CK IT? heh
