AAA has offered some tips on how to take care of your car while you’re not driving it.
- Do not let your gas tank stay low. Spokeswoman Jeanette Casselano says you want to keep it ¾ full or completely full. It will reduce condensation in the car, in your gas tank, which if better for your gas.
- Adding a fuel stabilizer will help the car start easier and keep the gas from going bad.
- A battery tender can help keep your battery charged.
- Prop up wiper blades so they aren’t touching the windshield so they don’t get stuck to the glass.
- Add 10 PSI of pressure more than usual to prevent flat spots from forming.
- Don’t use your parking break! It can become frozen or your parking brake pad can deteriorate over time.
