Before placing a vehicle in storage, perform the following tasks: (1) Clean the exterior, interior of cab, engine, and undercarriage.  Wash any oil, grease, or mud from tires. (2) Conduct a visual inspection of the vehicle.  Check lubricant levels and tire pressures (CTIS highway setting).  Correct any discrepancies. (3) Completely lubricate the chassis and all ancillary equipment in accordance with (Para 2-9 and TM 9-2320-364-10). (4) Check the coolant level.  Test the coolant to ensure that the cooling system is protected against corrosion and temperatures down to –30°F (–34°C).  Add antifreeze or corrosion inhibitors compatible with ethylene glycol base antifreeze if cooling system is not adequately protected.  (TB 750-651). (5) Ensure the fuel tank contains at least 20 gallons (75.7L) of treated fuel.  The fuel should be treated with Biobor J.F. (Item 24, Appendix C) (or equivalent).  The addition of 3 teaspoons of Biobor to 20 gallons of fuel will provide adequate protection against fungus growth.  When storing a vehicle in freezing conditions, the addition of 3 ounces (88.7 ml) of isoproply alcohol (Item 17, Appendix C) to 20 gallons of diesel fuel will help prevent fuel line freeze up. (6) All fuel that is added to the vehicle during storage must be treated.  While in storage, there must always be at least 20 gallons (75.7L) of treated fuel in the vehicle’s fuel tank.
