Winter storage

I have a 2015 2 ss 1LE, Just wondering the best way to store it for the winter, It wont fit in the heated garage, I have things to do to my 67 this winter. Should I fill the tank, or leave it low with some stable in it? Should I disconnect the battery or leave it on a battery tender all winter? Worried about electronics in the car with no power over the winter such as the computers. Tires< leave on the concrete or some roller stands with the concave bottoms so the tires are not sitting on flat ground in the cold. Any ideas or suggestions would be great thanks MIke

Re: Winter storage

full tank of fuel with sea foam. I have never been a fan of stabil. I would also leave the battery in the car and use a tender. anything under the tires will help keep them from settling with the freeze and thaw of the soil
this is just my opinion only

X2 on the sea foam and tender. Better for the car to winter it in FL at my house. I'll take good care of it.

Re: Winter storage

Park the car on thick cardboard, this will absorb the moisture raising up from the ground.
Place rodent traps under the car or the mice will attack it. I would also place 1lb bags of desiccant under the hood in the cabin and in the trunk to absorb moisture. Wax the exterior but do not remove the wax. Spray all the rubber with silicone spray lubricant.
You will have some spring cleaning to do but the car will be in good shape.

Re: Winter storage

Thanks Guy's, I plan to store it off the ground on some casters so the tires are off the ground and in a round pocket. The moisture control is a good idea. I have a good cover for it . I will have plenty of mouse poison around the barn. Mike

Re: Winter storage

Jeez, how long is the winter! I know I used to live in Minnesota. Sound like a lot of trouble for a new car that will be able to handle the weather by it self. I would just drive it every few weeks on a nice winter day and would be cautious of a cover that could hold moisture and cause more issues than not. Give it a good wax and don't leave it on and wash every so often.(Used to have a detail shop and leaving it on for long periods is a no-no. Put some bounce pads in the interior and under the hood to keep the critters away. I have 05 Vett that lives outside and that is what I do and the car is happy after 10 years. Granted we don't get that cold but the car doesn't care. My 99 Z vert sits outside as well and did in Iowa. My 5 69's however all live inside.
