    To fil or not to fill

    I know this should be in the how to section but I know I would get a faster respobse here. I think today was the last ride. I have a quarter of a tank of gas left. Should i put stabilizer in and store as is or should I store it with a full tank and stabilizer. Thanks!

    Just suck it out and use it in the mower to cut the lawn the last couple times before the snow falls.

    fill it up so no moisture can get in the tank and ruin the gas you would put in it next year if you leave it empty all winter. and don't forget the stabil!!

    good question

    I'm considering filling with permium & adding stabil. If humitidity is a problem in your area I would say fill it. If the air is dry in your area then definitely just stabil. I would fill with premium the first time next year. Fuel loses it's octane as it sits.

    I don't know the right answer but I have been told that moisture is common in metal tanks due to sweating but not in plastic ones.

    sweating

    Plastic sweats but it does not rust. I definitely fill my stored autos that have metal tanks.

    Put stable in what's left and run it to get it in the carbs. I wouldn't fill it, as that gas will be garbage come spring.

    Also if you do like VOO DOO say the tank will actually pressurize from the little fuel vapor thats left in the tank. If you notice when you open the tank it vents you hear that hissing sound. No moisture will get in.

    No carbs - it is an 2008. So it seems like moisture isnt a problem because it is sealed and is plastic. I will leave the quarter of a tank in and add yamaha's fuel stabilizer. Thanks!!!
