Hi please see my guide on storing your focus for long periods of time,
in the list of guides below this post.
i had mine in storage for 6 months and no problems following the guide. i understand not all of it may be possible for you but the fuel additive and the blocking of the exhaust and air intake will be possible along with filling the fuel tank and perhaps leaving the hand brake off if you have some wheel chocks and over inflating the tyres.

Could you not bribe your MTO for garage storage?
Whenever my unit used to deploy, we all used to park in the squadron hangar and the rear party would start all the cars once a week.
