Some of that seems to be the tried and true stuff that works.
Yep! I use a cover, trickle charger, and vapor barrier on the floor make sure the a/c is ran and then the heater.

So basically, I do what I've heard the majority say. I've also heard to use pickle plugs if not starting the engine all winter long.

Boy, what a thread...
trickle to the tail light wouldn't work unless the running lights were left on, but a trickle to the trunk light... Oh, forgot about the Body Control Module... Wonder what state it's in when the battery goes dead, A person could cut the top off with a hot saw... Messy... Jack it up and put skate boards under the tires... And oh, by the way, the first egg came from the easter bunny of course!


If it rolls, floats, flies or shoots, runs on gasoline or gunpowder, goes fast or shoots a big bullet and makes lots of noise, thus producing torque and recoil its cool.

It's commonly used in small private airplanes when stored over the winter. They go in where the spark plug would go and obsorb moisture that enters the combustion chamber in order to avoid corrosion.

Commonly used to cap a pickle jar before the invention of screw on lids.

If it rolls, floats, flies or shoots, runs on gasoline or gunpowder, goes fast or shoots a big bullet and makes lots of noise, thus producing torque and recoil its cool.
