Need some help with this one...

Is it best to store the boat for winter with the fuel tank full or as close to empty as possible???

I know with cars it's a good practice to keep them full during winter months---same for the Tracker???

I also wonder what the gas prices will be in the spring...40 gallons purchased now may save me some $$$ versus what the price will be in the spring...What about the oil injection tank? Any concern with it being full/empty?

What's the best practice???

thanks!

Everyone seeme to use "STABIL" Surprisingly I have heard some cases of STABIL leaving a RED Gummy Deposit in Carbs. It has not happened to me, but instead I use the FAMOUS Product Called SEAFOAM. It is also a Carb Cleaner, Fuel STAbilizer, CArbon Remover, and DRIES GAs. I use it regularly thru the season per can instructions and use it Stronger per instructions when using it to Stabilize Gas.. I will use it on my last outing of the year. Not sure how much gas will remain over the winter. I will top off in the spring and Again add Seafoam to the fresh Gas. Never had a problem doing it this way and with Seafoam there are more advantages.

I'll ring in on he SEAFOAM also. Run it all year and use as a stabilizer during storage.

Agree to fill both fuel and oil. More importantly though, once a fuel stabilizer product is used, make sure enough gas is burnt in the motor to thoroughly get the stabilized fuel into lines, and carbs.
