With our winters so short in my part of the country, I've never had a big issue with fuel sitting long enough to go bad. That product has a good reputation for keeping gas from turning bad if it sits for several months and you can't run the gas out of the fuel system.

Thanks:

I think fuel stabalizer is a good option also. I prefer completely running the machine out of gas. Fuel stabalizer can prevent condensation in the gas tank that could lead to rust. But how many mowers do you see with steel gas tanks anymore? When using fuel stabalizer you have to make sure you put the stabalizer in and then run it for a few minutes so that it gets in the carb. I don't remember if that is listed above or not.
Just putting it in the gas tank does the carb no good.
Unless your mower has a fuel shut off.
Put the stabalizer in.
turn the gas off.
and then run it out of fuel

Well anyways you get the point.
I belive either way is effective.
