Do not "flatten" it.

If it is going to sit more than a month, get an automatic trickle charger and keep it attached. It will sense when the charge is dropping and bring it back up with out overcharging. You can get one at most auto parts stores or at Wally World for about $ 20.


You can trust your car - and a whole lot more - to the man who wears a star.
