Long Term Storage

So, I'm set to deploy in April for 13 months and the Taco is going into storage... government storage

Anyone have any experience with this?

How should I prep the Taco for this storage?

I heard they start the vehicles periodically, and they need a full tank of gas... is this true?

Usually I leave the truck with someone who watches it and what not but not this time... I'm a little freaked out about it.

I dunno that never happened for any of my vehicles, they were taken care of by my family but here's a bump.
Who is watching your new bike? Not them too?
I saw your other post about your assignment too. Be safe, keep us posted.
