one thing i would do is add fuel stabilizer then fill the tank, run the car so the stabliizer is in all the lines

also make sure its clean and dry to keep it from rusting/tarnishing and throw a cover on it

i know some people put a bit of oil in the cylinders to keep the rings from rusting and siezing to the cylinder walls, but im not sure if that what you are supposed to do or if there is a special product for that...someone else might be able to help you with that.

hope this helps

The fuel stabilizer is a good idea, but here's another trick for getting the fuel out of the lines and injectors and it is very simple... when you have the car where it is going to rest for the extended time, chock the wheels (no e-brake), and then pull the fuse for the fuel pump and start the car. The car will run until all of the fuel in the lines and injectors are gone, insuring that you don't get you injectors plugged. The fuel stabilizer is still needed to keep the stuff in the tank fresh. If you were sitting longer than a couple of months you may consider putting the car up on jackstands to help preserve the tires, but that's generall for R E A L L Y long-term storage... good luck!
