    self isolated micras---up on blocks

    So working from home so no need for the micra(because we have the crapola rattling 2015 honda fit) sooooo pulled the insurance, filled up the gas tank, disconnected the battery. plan on running it once per month....thoughts?


    2015 Micra S (manual)
    no A/C /no power options
    Feb 2015 build
    9,999 purchase price + tax..no additional 1600$ because it was a 2015 purchased in 2016
    so receipt says $8,399....+1600 .... so they look good i guess...for a brand new car!

    Covid 19...she up on blocks!!!

    I'd put some fuel stabilizer in the tank. Only running it once a month the fuel is going to last awhile and old gas will often destroy a good fuel pump. Exercising the fuel pump a little more often might be a good idea. I don't know the cost of the fuel pumps for the Micra but the one's for the newer Versa's are over $300 for an aftermarket pump from Rock Auto. OEM I think is about $800.

    The issue i had was after running for the last time the oil remaining in the variable valve timing acuator got gummed up and through a lot of codes including misfires. I had it changed out on warranty.
