I've decided to park my Jetta for the winter. Is there anything in particular to do with a diesel before storage? Thanks.
P.S. I love this forum. Everyone is very helpful. Great job!

Put a trickle charger on it and change the engine oil. It's better to have clean engine oil than dirty engine oil on a storage car. Inflate the tires. If you can, drive it once a week for at least 20 minutes to warm it up and keep the battery charged. This will also help prevent the tires from flat spotting.

I don't suggest car covers because they hold and rub in any dirt that gets under them or is on the car. Obviously, a garage would be best.

Put some fuel additive in the fuel to help prevent gelling in the dead of winter, your fuel now might not be winterized yet.
