you can put your car in storage for like $15 a month, ask one of your nco's or your readiness about vehicle storage for deployments. I'm deployed right now, my dad is driving one of my mustangs and my other mustang is in storage. Also lucky, thats a short *** deployment lol.

You will want to fill the tank up with gas and put a fuel stabilizer in it and change the oil before you put it up. Once you get it out change the oil again.

As little gas as possible. If any. Id spray the cylinder walls with wd40. This way if any moister gets into the engine, it wont allow it to rust and seize. Id suggest the car cover that is fit for the car. Id also tie it down to the car somehow so it cant easily come off from wind or what not. Also, disconnect the battery. May even want to remove it.

You want the tank full so you dont get condensation and rust your tank.

Ah, I was just recommending that because they stored my car in an indoor unit out of the weather. I have it on jack stands to help save the tires. They crank mine up once a week so the fluids don't settle too much, didn't know if they had any options for you besides the lot, that was one of my options as well.

This is what I with my car every winter. I fill the tank up with gas and put some stabil in it and let the car run for a few minutes to make sure it gets in the fuel lines. I also put a set of old wheels and tires on so i don't ruin my good tires. About once or twice a month i will start the car up and let it warm up and just shift threw the gears to make sure all the parts in the trans stay moving freely. Also before i put it up I change the oil and once i pull it back out i change the oil again.
