I fill the boat and add stabilizer run it for about 10 minutes before I pull it out of the water for the season. When I put it back in the water 6 months later it runs like I ran it the day before.

170 gallon tank and I keep 120-130 in it all the time. Boat is garaged. Been doing it this way for 8 years. Boat will sit anywhere from 3-6 months at times. I always use ring-free but no stabilizer. Never had any problem with it.

I've also never seen a drop of water in the fuel when servicing the filters. None in the F150 engine filters and none in the fuel/water separating filters. I should add that I never buy fuel on the water, only at gas stations and only Chevron 89 fuel. So this only applies to trailer boaters.

I leave it empty sometimes and full others, depending on busy schedule...To me, it is more important to change the gas/water filters every 50 hours to ensure no water gets to the engine, than whether the gas gets old....but, logic says fresh is always preferable to old (fishing line, steaks, girls, wives, etc.).......
