    Hi All,
    Spring is coming and just curious how you store your gas powered equipment. I am mostly curious about the gas. Do you prefer to fill the tank with fresh fuel/stabilizer or do you prefer to let it run dry and store it that way. Thanks!

    I usually fill my tanks with high octane, good quality gas to prevent condesation, then use STABIL fuel stabilzer. I put some in the tank, let it run through for a little while and then turn off the gas and let it run out of the carburators. My stuff starts good in the future if I do that.

    Both our diesel and gas get a stablizer dumped in the tank before winter, and ran for about a half hour.
