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

    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.
