My other car is a MINI!!!!
I know this is generally the feeling, but I have to say it's not been my experience to date!

I've left my mini for 3-4 months at a time in the past without touching it at all, and every time the little gel battery spins it over a treat without an issue! Never had it drain on me, never had to bump the car, and never put a charger on it in almost 3 years of very infrequent use!
