I have searched through the forums but haven't come across this. I have a Ford Focus 07 Zetec Climate that is parked in an off street open parking space. I have to go away for five weeks, so it won't be driven for a while. I was wondering if someone can provide some advice on how to store the vehicle properly for this duration of time. With the cold weather, I am a bit worried about the battery. The options that I have been thinking of are,
1) Leave it as it is and hope that it starts on my return
2) Ask someone to start the engine for 10mins once a week
3) Attach some sort of in car battery maintainer (any suggestions?)
4) Remove the battery and attach it to a in-house battery maintainer, charger etc. (again any suggestions)
And is there anything else that I should take care of? Tyres, hand brake, oils, wipers? I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions.
