Fill the gas tank and add fuel stabilizer to prevent condensation from forming in the tank. Run the engine so the stabilizer gets through the system, I add a small amount of marvel oil to fuel as well. Get an automatic battery tender and connect it to the battery (if you have available power) Change the engine oil (old oil has acids in it that are not good for the bearings). It is good to support the vehicle on cement blocks under the chassis to relieve pressure on the suspension but that is optional. If no power is available, remove the battery...there are systems that will eventually drain it if connected. Store the battery fully charged, in a place where it is not on a cement floor and is not brutally cold. Even with stabilizer, fuel will loose a lot of it's "punch" after 30 days so don't be upset if performance drops off for a while after getting it back on the road in Spring.

Where is the oil filter and is castrol sys. ok to use

I would check the Mobil 1 website, that car takes special oil. If you dont know where the filter is, better let someone else change the oil for you. Dont depend on these cheapy lube shops to put the right oil in. Do your homework and get the correct oil. I'm sure there are some Mini sites and groups you can refer to on the web.
