Perfect, that'll be my plan.

Back in the day, when I stored my Camaro, I was told to also put the car on jack stands. Is that something from the 80s still?

Cool, sounds good. I have some carpet scraps from finishing the basement that I'll pull onto.

Sounds easy enough. With the 3 brain cells I have left from Vegas, I'll figure it out.

Yeah, it was a great time (besides having a cold the whole time).

Never made it to the KQ morning show, slept in instead. But did go to thier afterparty at the Nugget, which was fun.

Saw Chris Angel perform, and then pretty much bummed around and gambled/ate/drank downtown.

Ate at the Heart Attack Grill, that was an experience.

Heart Attack Grille was good. Burger was good, I wanted to get the large one, but you can't split them, so my wife and I split the single.

It was fun to see everyone wearing hosiptal gowns. Also, the jello shots come in a giant syringe, that was cool! The jello tasted bad, but the idea was cool.

Excellent question. If you aren't aware of the issues with storing a car and ethanol in the tank, you’ll probably want to read up on it. You should try to run the fuel low, and then fill it about half full with NON-oxygenated fuel. We have plastic gas tanks so you don’t need to fill it full. Then I recommend add a fuel treatment like Sea Foam, and running the car to make sure you've got it up to the injectors. I used to use Sta-bil, but still had fuel issues, so gave up on it.

Thanks guys! I'll drive around and burn up what I have left in the tank and try to find some Non Oxy. I have a can of seafoam in the garage, so I'll throw some of that in there with that 1/2 tank and drive around a bit to get it all mixed up .

Ok, lets talk Non Oxy fuel.

Does one assume if the pump doesn't say "this fuel contains up to 10% ethanol" that the fuel is Non Oxy?

I just ran to the Super America near my daycare where I get gas sometimes (mosty for the Durango). On the pump it said "Contains up to 10% Ethanol".

So, I drove to Holiday by my house where I get gas most of the time in the G8 when needing gas around here. The pump didn't say anything about Ethanol or Non Oxy.

For giggles, I drove through Fleet Farm and thier pumps were the same as Holiday, didn't mention Non Oxy or Ethanol at all.

I know I have seen Non Oxy on a pump before, I am wondering if that was the BP by my work where I fill up freaquently because they have 93 Oct still.

If it's non-oxy, it usually has a "Notice" on the pump saying "for classic car, off road, and small engine use only ".
