I bought a gasser for several reasons specific to me, but the main reason was that I mainly drive it when I pull the camper and diesel engines don't like to sit.
So that leads to my question. I have put less than 600 miles my truck since mid July 2018.
I have a full tank of gas and use fuel stabilizer. Should I be worried about anything else? It is parked in an unheated garage out of the weather.
You wont have any major issues, but you can do a lot to prolong the life of your engine.
My pickup sits a lot too, you will want to watch for moisture in your oil from condensation, you may see some pudding in the oil fill cap if you only do short drives. My ford has a built in calculation for changing the oil, 6 months or however many miles. it counts down for me, when it hits 5% and below, it gets changed out. they do the 6 month counter to compensate for the truck sitting. your brake rotors will get rusty as well, you may notice the crunching or grinding of the rust when you stop. i try to drive it at least once a month, engaging the 4 wheel drive system to lubricate that as well. i will take it to work, then take the long way home, just to get it warmed up.
if you let it sit for long periods of time, look at how long ethanol in fuel takes to separate. its usually about 3 months. in colder climates, make sure your tank is FULL. there is less physical room left in the tank for condensation, therefore less chance of water.
