I hardly drive the Volvo, maybe one month out of the year. Sitting in my garage the whole time. Any suggestion how to maintain my car while sitting in my garage for long period of time? Should I take my battery out or leave it in? Should I keep the gas almost empty or full before parking in the garage for months?
