Forgot to mention: Any sludge and cr*p in old oil has more of a chance to settle out over an extended period of time. Since you've changed your oil, you won't have this problem. Disconnecting the battery doesn't make any difference if you have a battery tender (maint. charger) - you don't need to. The downside if you disconnect the battery is that the engine computer will lose it's stored air/fuel settings that it learns when running. It will relearn the air/fuel map after you run it a couple of times, but when I had to reset the computer on my T/A it didn't idle or run quite right until after 2 - 3 driving cycles. I guess the guy who recommended putting antifreeze into the windshield washer tank really meant to say put windshield washer fluid into the tank that is already premixed with ethanol/methanol/etc. to give the fluid anti-freezing properties! The other member was right in saying don't put ethylene glycol (radiator) antifreeze into the washer tank because that stuff is bad for your paint.

That's why I'm glad I live in Houston, Texas. I don't have to do any of that crap. I don't have to store it. The coldest it'll probally ever get here is maybe mid-30's.
