Storage and Fuel questions?

3810 14
So, leaving again for about 3 months. And I am getting told different things about fuel , storage etc. I've left before and have let my cars sit for 3 months and not think twice about it. So, I parked the car last night, has just under 1/2 tank or so, put a car cover on her and left her in the garage. Should I be all freaking out when I come back in July or now. I've always gone with if its 3-6 months you're cool, if its longer, put some fuel Stabil in there and that will take you to about a year. But just curious what others on here think,

That's what I feel, but my buddy at my dealer (who usually watched my cars for me) is REALLY trying to convince me that I will have issues when I get back.

Little beyond that part haha, I drove it back from Vegas (about 2 hours) so whatever was left it whats left, it was about a half. I am not too concerned as I am only gone not even 3 months this time. Now later this year when I go back for 5 months, I will top it off and probably put in the fuel Stabil since it will also be during winter months.

I did have them at 35, I am not too worried abut flat spotting, I've read that a lot of newer tired anymore don't have that problem as much. But when I get back I will get the race ramps ones that are curved just for that reason. I wasn't aware of the Stabil not being good for newer cars though. Have to check in on that. And I thought I had a battery tender, thought it was built into my Craftsman one, but it wasn't. I may order one and have my buddy out it on for me, but I am more worried about that for the next longer trip. Thanks for all the replies as well.

I guess even according to the owners manual its not a big deal. All it said for long term (greater then 2 weeks) storage, was to run the AC on high for 5 min lol. I think i'll be ok
