I just got the ski back from the dealer after the 10 hour service and winterization. The tank is only about half full, and from what I (think I) know, the tank should be full for winterization because condensation will form in the tank and water will enter the gas. Should I fill it up?

Yes, it should be nearly (95%) full and have some Sta-Bil in it.... Ron

I just run it down til the ski is beeping at me like crazy. Throw in a little stable run it through the fuel lines and you're set. That way you don't spend all that $$$ and have a fuel tank of gas with stable to run through your first couple rides of the next season.

I worry about condensation in cars with steel gas tanks, ski's with plastic tanks I like to leave it low on fuel so I don't have to worry about stale fuel on the first ride of the season.

I thought condensation occured when the air temp on one side of a surface was drastically different than that on the other....or...when warm air blew against a cool surface?
A fuel tank is a closed system...where is it getting enough air to form any apprecaible amount of water?
