Reading the comments, I'm wondering about the gasoline availability issues some reported. I'm new at this, but at least so far, I fuel up before parking it at the storage yard. That way it's always ready to go when we are. Is there a reason not to park with a full gas tank? I don't expect to ever go more than a month or so without driving it.
never go below 3/4 at end of trip always refuel at around 1/2 tank when traveling

If storing for long periods be sure all fuel tanks are completely full & add some brand of fuel stabilizer, Seafoam, StaBil, anything to stabilize the fuel & prevent condensation.

If you don't keep a full tank, condensation gets in can dilute your gasoline. If you let it sit for a few months, add a fuel preservative too.

Please remember to throw in some fuel stabilizer also!
Probably something that is designed to deal with ethanol...
