Winter storage? (kinda..)

Was looking for tips for the winter. But, I plan on driving it occasionally if it's a nice sunny day with no snow, ice or sand all over the roads. I don't have a garage btw, but there's an over hang over the driveway where I put the car. The nose still sticks out though.. Any tips?

Fuel stabilizer, battery tender unless you drive at least every two weeks for half hour at highway speed. Could use jack stands to keep from flat spot on tires, but this is a pain and unnecessary if you drive more often, over inflate tires by five psi to keep shape if not jack stanned. Fresh oil change. Proper coolant mixture ratio 50/50 water/anti-freeze. Undiluted washer fluid. Check belts/hoses.

That's all I would do... GL!

Thanks, I would like to drive it every chance I get. I'm in NY, and last year we didn't really get any snow. The year before that we got a lot. So it's hard to tell but I'm hoping for a snow-free winter!!

And battery tenders need to be plugged into a wall outlet?

Queens, see your down in Jersey. I've actually been thinking of moving down there. The city is soooo expensive and just sux lol. But I do love it at the same time. It's like a complicated relationship lol. How's Jersey and where about are you?

Jersey is OK, I work next to AC so it can get interesting. I personally think NJ is still too expensive. I'm saving to build a house just west of Philly. Can't wait to move back and have a garage again! The city sounds fun! I haven't been there since high school though.

Doesn't snow where I am at but I lived in South Dakota and if I was still there I would def put mi car up for the winter .... Car is low and salt on the roads would cause serious rusting
