I know it's early in the season and I still have another 10 weeks of grass cutting and roto-tilling the gardens but very soon I'll be power washing and putting some of my equipment away for the winter. My question is... how do you store your gas engines for the winter? Do you cut off the gas from the gas tanks and run the engines until the engines cutoff from lack of fuel? My father used to do this and then remove the spark plugs, place 2-3 drops of 30w oil... place the plugs back and turn over the engine a couple of times. With the new Ethanol gas what is the proper recomendation for storing and winterizing gas engines that will not be used for 4-6 months. I always use stabil gas additive but I have a concern with ethanol gas just sitting in the carbs all winter.
