I am planning to buy my friends 2002 Honda Civic LX Coupe as a second vehicle driven 80% of the year. I currently live in San Diego but will be moving to attend school a little more than an hour away.
Reasons for purchase: MPG, Ease of maintenance, Less miles on truck, 2nd car for emergencies or maintaining either vehicle
Reasons for concern: The truck will most likely stay in SD so I'm not sure how often I'll be able to drive it. If I don't drive it for over a month, do I need to prepare the truck for short-term storage and how? I can leave my truck at my dad's for him to drive but I prefer not to leave it outside and also defeats the purpose of reducing mileage.
