Hi,
I've been riding the bus to work all week and only driving my car on weekends because of high gas prices.
Is there any reason I should start it up in the middle of the week? Will it do it any harm to sit for 5 days a week without being started?

Thank you.
June

Hi June,

Apart of battery drain, there should not be much of a problem if you use it on weekends, however running time should not be too short to allow the alternator to charge back the battery.
