    Car hasn't been run in months.

    My car has been in the body shop for two months without being started (to my knowledge)

    It was about time for an oil change, I had a 1/4 tank of gas I think....

    I was planning on replacing pcv valve, oil filter, oil, fuel filter, and tranny oil right before the wreck.

    There is also a small leak from my fumotovalve that was present before the wreck but is still leaking... not sure how much has drippe off.

    Anyway I'm mostly worried about my gas and fuel system. Am I just being too paranoid?

    Also at the most my car will still be in the shop for another 3-4 weeks. (back ordered parts )

    I wouldn't stress too much about the fuel until it's been sitting about 6 months. If you are really that worried, you could always stop by the shop, and throw a can of Stabil in the tank. If you are concerned about the oil, either notify them of the leak so they can check it before starting, or stop by yourself and check it. Once you get the car back, run the fuel out of it, give it a fresh tank, change your fluids, pcv, and filters like you had planned, and check the tire pressures for good measure
