Storage Question

So starting next Monday (6/24) I will be gone for three weeks straight. I was wondering if there's anything I should do to keep the car in tip-top condition. Or better yet, what should I do to the car for this short term storage period? Things like Gasoline? Battery? Oil? ect

All comments are highly appreciated.

3 weeks should be fine. Maybe make sure you add some air to your tires.

My car sits longer than that some times, especially in the wintef

For that term, nope you should be good.

Is it going to be garaged? If not you may want to get a cover especially in Miami with rain often.

Mine sits too if I'm too busy or the weather is nasty to drive it.

Make sure the car is freshly cleaned before covering it. And use the locking cable. If its not a high quality cover, it may do more damage from flapping in the breeze than leaving it uncovered. Best solution is to find a garage or port for it if possible.
