I have stored a few of my vehicles for a year or a year+ and it was always less than a 1/4 tank of gas in there and I would personally put fuel stabilizer in there, and change the oil before and afterwards. I would also spray a bit of bug spray in the wheel wells, a bit in the trunk and some in the engine bay around the sides to try to keep spiders and ants away. Disconnect the battery so you don't have that slow drain on it.
When pulling it out of storage drive it until all of that fuel is out and then put in a fresh tank with possible a fuel additive to clean the system and injectors bc the mileage may seem to suck for the 1st tank or two coming out of storage after awhile. And of course make sure the tire pressures are good before you start driving it and like mentioned above get the oil changed depending on how long it was stored. If you have a battery maintainer then you should be good to go on the battery just check things out with a voltmeter or multimeter running(13.5at least i think) and not running(at least12.5).
