Thx 17Racer! I will file this under "dewinterizing". I had wondered if putting a manual valve on this line and closing it, running it until it shuts down, would be good preventative measure if going into storage for the winter. Thoughts?

Definitely use Stabil.
I also used to take off the fuel line to the carb on my motorcycles that sat for some time and spray generously either WD 40 or Sea Foam Deep Creep directly into the fuel line inlet - close it up with no fuel flow.
This will coat the internals.

This ethenol stuff will leave deposits on the jets that is nearly impossible to get off.
Been there...changed a few pilot jets before I caught on.

Well I know the trick of running a temporary gas tank with injector cleaner works. I did it with mine, and yes at the same time I put a little shut of valve on the line knowing we are not going to let this condition happen again. So yes the answer is for a shut off valve.
