Question about 2009 Mini Cooper
My friend has a mini cooper and would like to put it up for the winter and dont know exactly what to do can you advise me on that
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.
