I have heard the opposite about draining the tank especially just for winter storage. Sta-bil in the tank and then fill it before it gets stored. This is supposed to prevent moisture building up in the tank. That being said, I bought a Honda that had been in storage for 3 years with a half a tank of gas. With a fresh battery, it fired right up and then did the "Fast Pass" with the old gas and oil! When my Packard gets put away each winter, I make sure to put Sta-bil in the tank and run it for a while to make sure it mixes in and makes it to the carb. I do make sure to start her once every 4 to 6 weeks.
