How To Store Your Warm Weather Gear

It's that time of year when the weather turns crisp, colors brighten, and there are a dwindling number of perfect days left to relax outside or take one more drive, ride, or trip to the lake.

Too soon, it will be time to put away your classic car, boat, motorcycle, and patio furniture, until warm weather arrives again.

Proper storage techniques are super important to keep your gear in great shape and running order. To make sure you are ready to roll next spring, we've compiled a list of simple storage tips:

* Storing your classic car or motorcycle. It's important to clean and remove all road grime, dust and other debris from all interior and exterior surfaces before storing. Then, after cleaning, make sure to protect hard surfaces and finished leather with 303 Automotive Protectant. Also, remember that old gas breaks down over time and can lead to gummed-up fuel lines, carburetors and injectors. To avoid these issues, fill your fuel tank 95 percent full with fresh gas and add a quality fuel stabilizer such as STA-BIL Storage to keep the gas fresh for as long as 24 months. After the stabilizer is added, run the engine for a few minutes to ensure that the stabilizer gets into all parts of the fuel system.
