    Add diesel stabilizer to the fuel with the tanks completely full to prevent condensation, disconnect the battery but hook up a battery tender to it in a temperature controlled environment, it wouldn't hurt to have someone crank it up once a month for 15 minutes.
    Thanks for serving so my family can live free, and take care!!

    Keep the tank FULL, add some stabilizer if your going be gone for a while, like if you can't get to it on leave for like a year. Best thing to do it find someone to drive it every so often, it will burn off moisture that will collect in the crankcase, keep the battery charged……remember, diesels like to RUN, not sit……using an engine is way better than letting it sit. Also, you might disconnect the batt so the trucks electronics don't drain it over a long period
