Gas tank

Postby john2189 » Sat Aug 29, 2020 10:27 am

Is It better to fill the tank, or drain it empty for long term storage to keep it from rusting ? And drain the carb.

Fill the tank, drain the carb. Use a fuel stabilizer made for use with ethanol fuel.

Unless you run non ethonol then you can run any stabilizer.
