I’m going on a 6 month vacation. What should I do to prepare my diesel shitbox to stay idle for that period so it will be almost in the same condition when I come back?

dump anti gel/stabilizer into gas tank
unplug fuel pump fuse and run car until fuel line is empty
unplug the battery

get a friend (if you have one) to run the engine once every few weeks

>>23627516
Remove wheels, battery and keep fuel level low to pour on fresh stuff later. Silicone on everything rubber. Wash car and keep it in a heated garage.
>>23627593
It's a diesel engine. Doing that means manually pumping fuel into the engine afterwards.

When: this Friday, the 26th, at 9:50pm
Where: in, behind, to the side of, anywhere around the 76 gas station in Saratoga, just look for the shitboxes
Why: i do what i want
10pm is too late: lmao traffic tho retard

Look, we gonna get some sips from 76, go up 9, turn right onto 35, stop at Alice's to regroup, then go down 84 to the beach.
If you are directionally challenged, there's the maps keywords in the pic.
There's roadwork on 9 apparently but it isn't a big deal.

Bring any car or motorbike, no one cares.
Bring a coat because it gets cold at the beach.
Someone better bring a beach ball too.
Consider bringing a frs radio so when you bin it we can laugh at you more

before he made the purchase he had a seperate thread asking if he should get a high end lexus for 100,000. a shit ton of people told him not to do it, but he explained how he had a lot of money in other investments and his girlfriend made a lot of money and had saw no issue with him making such a purchase. he eventually went down to 70,000 for the gtr, but still made threads about what to buy with the other 30,000, i dont remember what his decision was.

was he wise? you decide.

can /o/ redpill me on GPS trackers? is there an /o/ approved solution?
my car isnt worth a fuck of a lot but it has sentimental value so if it did get stolen i would want to recover it and maybe send some niggers to jail.

i want something discreet (so no OBD port devices) that has its own battery but can be hardwired to the cars battery if necessary. thinking of either hiding it under the passenger seat, the rear dash, under the headliner, or somewhere in the trunk). would aslo prefer something that lets me use my own sim and phone plan and doesnt charge me a monthly fee to use some shitty app.

>>23629258
Don't be cheap, get one that sends an alarm to your phone, if the car is moving without your authorization. It should have some log and send coordinates frequently. Chances are high that, once it arrives on site, it will be parked into a shielded garage. And if it's an expensive car and thives are not retarded, they will carry a gps jammer with them. But that is not often the case.

Device could be hidden into some hole in the cars frame. And covered but accesible for charging. I'd check if the tracker gets warm when it sends the location. So if you stuff it somewhere, it won't overheat. And test it in the cold too. If needed, insulate the hiding spot.

this... real time tracking is cool but its not like the cops are going to start a pursuit based on that shit. they will probably wait till you get a fix from a parking lot.

im particularly torn, deciding on a new car and for some reason an '18 golf gti s is sticking in my mind, probably because i found one at ~$20k with only 10,000 miles on it from a dealer i know. but im also considering a similar year acura TL or audi a4. practicality is important, but i obviously want it to be fun to drive too. i plan on being as spot on with maintenance as possible, but i really don't know what the maintenance cost difference is going to be, and living on the west coast inclines me towards japanese or american made. is self maintenance on the vw alright these days? am i stupid for hoping i can push a golf over 150k or are the vw memes a thing of the past now?

it loooks like its supposed to work simply by cleaning the fuel/injection systems. there are better fuel cleaners, I was looking into them not 5 minutes ago. Techron is probably the most popular and most recommended, but I opted for Red Line, also popular, because it contains upper cylinder lubricant, which I didnt see mentioned in other products
>>
>>23630215
I should mention these products also claim to reduce emissions, its just not their top tag-line. I think using techron or red line is a better choice than the OP
