we once stored ours for 3-years. MPG sucked more than usual when we went out again but otherwise no ill effects. i did occasionally exercise it during those years. pay particular attention to the tires.

If mine I would treat the old fuel with Seafoam according to the amount of gas in the tank... a little heavy on the Seafoam will not hurt it.

When put to the test none of the "stabilizers" works very well. Aviation 104 has 0 ethanol and last dang near forever. Had it in my dually that was stored for 4 years with this in the tanks. New battery and it fired right up, and never missed a beat. Ethanol is the enemy, if you have to store it for long periods of time....put non ethanol fuel in the tank. It's not as good a Av gas, but it better in the long run.
