    and never use the backup generator, it will run the engine every 6 weeks or so to keep the oil properly circulated.

    This is the only car I know that has an error message that says, basically "You haven't been using enough gas, and the gas in the tank is getting close to becoming stale, so you must now drive on gas till you use at least half of the gas in the tank and replace it with fresh gas".

    At 13 months in, when this happened to me, I drove around 400 miles before putting a few gallons in. Those few gallons should get me by till next year when the gas is again going stale...
