Say WHAT??? I guess all the carburetors on new equipment must be ruined because they are dried out

well here is my method for the past 13 years. Park it in the shed and worry about it in the spring. I just try to only have 1/3 or less in the fuel tanks. Thats it. In the spring I may have to jump start a mower or 2 and air up some tires. And I don't have new mowers. Newest mower has over 1500 hours on it.

I tried stabil one year and had problems with half my equipment in spring. Since I have emptied everything.

I usually change oil first thing in the spring. I never made a big deal about it sitting in the winter with old oil but I guess it could be a issue.
