Garage List
I leave my car in the garage for half the year: month working overseas and month at home. I never disconnect the battery. The car starts first time.

I spoke with my service guy this afternoon about exactly the same thing but for two months rather than a couple of weeks.

He said I could either just disconnect the battery or use a trickle charger. Either would be fine"

I'm away for just over 6 weeks during April, May and June. My son will start the car up once a week.
