    Would you run the gas tanks dry and then fog them, or fill 'em up with gas that's been treated with stabilizer?

    I'd fill them w/ fuel and use stabilizer.....I'm assuming you will be using the equipment next season of course....We have some back up Equipment that hasn't been used for years but in that case don't have any gas in it at all and fog everything.....For stuff we dont use for years we will still turn them over to get the oil circulating.....We had one piece we didn't use for 4 years but by properly storing it it fired right up after its long "sleep"
