    Leaving for Las Vegas

    So I'm leaving for a month to Las Vegas for two private chef jobs on Wednesday. I'll be leaving my baby parked back home for the entire month. I was wondering if any preparations should be made to leave her sitting non-active for a month? Or should I follow some sort of warm-up/re-break in procedure with her when I get back? I'm not thinking it will be a big deal, as a month really isn't that long. I just figured it doesn't hurt to ask and I'd rather be safe than sorry. I get OCD about stuff like this.

    I'm going to miss my car

    Cross country road-trip crammed into 48+ hours in a friends not-so-reliable '96ish Buick LeSabre = Nerve Racking and Teh Suck.

    $13,750 for a months worth of work = Lots of money to mod with when I get back!

    example? I don't want to assume you mean that octane boost stuff because I don't think that's what you're referring to is it?

    One month? I would just fill it to the top so there is no room for condensation. I wouldn't leave it in a damp garage that long or it could get musty.


    Have fun in Vegas! Do you get some VIP perks for cooking for them?

    Not really any "perks" per say, just A LOT of money! Which is perfectly fine with me. I'll also be making more money with tips and random handouts. The people I'm working for are all professional poker players playing in the WSOP this month. So they are used to throwing around massive amounts of money for random reasons.

    On a side note, I drove through the entire state of Colorado on Route 70 West and all I have to say is WOW. What an absolutely beautiful state. I've always thought where I live is the best in the country as far as beautiful landscape but that drive on 70 blew NH out of the water, and all other places I've seen in this country for that matter. I've decided when I get old and retire that's where I'm moving.

    If it's just one month, I wouldn't worry about it.

    One month.. Yes I would absolutely worry about it. Ethanol absorbs water and promotes rust. Lucky for us almost all fuel is at least 10% junk. I would absolutely use a fuel additive and no I don't mean octane boost.

    Look into sta-bil or startron.

    I use star tron because it actually has enzymes to combat the ethanol.

    Well, already out here so epic fail on my part. I just made sure it was full on fuel to reduce vapors. Oh well, I'm sure she'll be fine while I'm gone.

    You are correct I live in Denver. I go snowboarding a lot and that road is a blast to drive. We have a great number of roads with beautiful sights to see. Living here a lot of people take it for granted. I just went to Nebraska to Lake Mcconaughy and omg, Nothing to look at but flat land and COWS!
