Leaving my baby.

Hi all,

Am off on annual food poisoning / hangover / sunburn / timeshare ******s excursion soon for two week stay.

I am after your thoughts with regard to leaqving the car. I have arranged for a trusted pal to look after the car but am concerned that the battery will go flat thus rendering security measures useless.

The obvious answer is to get my mate to start the car and charge battery the question is after how long and will once be enough?

What do you guys do any advice mucho appreciated.

Unless your battery is on the way out, it should last for 2 weeks. If you're concerned plug it into a trickle charger.

2 weeks should be fine. I went back to the states for a over a month and all I did was put the car on jack stands in the garage. Battery shouldnt go dead unless you leave the radio on for you Evo to listen to.
