Petrol has a life of 6 weeks so id definatly be dropping the petrol and also drop the oil before u start it and just throw in some cheap stuff and leave the oil filter and oil absorbs miosture over time.

Also warm it up and cool it down properly the first time round and then do a check for oil leaks and so on.

U may find that u will have a little humb in ur tyres from the car sitting for so long and u will notice it when u drive so nect time if the car is gona be kept in the same position, just keep the car of stands suspended in air


Hmmm, not sure about the fuel mate, I don't really know how to get all the fuel out of the tank and system.

Do you mean empty the oil but use the old oil filter to catch the crap and then put good oil in and a new filter?

Yeah I guess I'll have to look into some stands for it.


You can drain the fuel out by unplugging the fuel line before it gets into the fuel rail and just turn the key to on. The fuel pump will just do the work for you :). You can also remove the fuel filter and do it from there...that way you can change the fuel filter at the same time. Just got to try and catch all of the fuel coming out.


Yeah I'll be on this storage guy's property so if I can get by without draining the fuel that'd be good, lol.

Yeh best to replace the cheap oil and filter first up b4 u start it but if u carnt get the oil filter then at least do the oil.

Run cheap oil with new filter for a week then drop it and put good quality stuff in there.

Yeah I thinking I def. need to change the oil and oil filter before first start up. But I'm only in Central Qld for 2 days so I probably won't do a second oil change too.
