My daily commute changed from 9 miles to 9 feet when I started working remotely. That means I very rarely drive my car much. After a particularly hectic month, I didn't drive for about 4 weeks and the car's battery had died the next time I came to drive it.
So, what should I do to keep the car in good, running condition?
- What can keep the battery charged? Are trickle chargers recommended?
- How about oil? Should I make sure I take the car for a reasonable drive every week? Two weeks?
- What other aspects of the car should I keep in mind?
