Question Please provide input and THANKS in advance for looking!!!

Hello,

I am new to this forum. I am sorry if this has been posted before but I need advice as soon as possible.

I am leaving my car parked on my driveway for a significant amount of time as I am going to Europe and plan to stay there for 5 weeks. My family is coming along and I have no one to start it up for me every now and then. My car has the original alarm system. My question is, will it harm the car if it is left like that for over a month? My driveway is inclined; is it better to park the car facing upwards or downwards? Is it better to leave it with a full, half, or empty tank? Is it better to disconnect the battery?

I would really appreaciate you input. Thanks in advance for your replies.

-Aileen

Actually, its a "she"...

As many of you probably know, females have different interests. I was expecting both helpful and 'smart' replies. Thanks for those of you who provided prompt and *useful* comments.

Thankfully, the manual answers most of my questions, except the one about parking it downwards or upwards? Anyone recommend a solution to this particular question? Thanks once again.

We should have some sort of icon beside your name so people know if you are a he or a she. Don't you think? So then when you burn someone you can ease up a bit knowing its a woman you are talking to.

I think it depends on how steep the incline is, but if it's not that bad I would just prop some logs/rocks under the tires and leave it neutral. If it's really steep I'm sure the e-brake would suffice.

half or more towards a full tank of gas. Supposedly if you leave too little fuel moisture can build up in the tank and start rust... when i was in florida for 4 weeks i filled the tank 3/4 the way and put 8 oz of MMO in the gas tank.
