Although I don't necessarily disagree with the opinions, I'm not as opposed to going ethanol-free as the others. I don't like ethanol fuels. I think its a racket. But they're here so we gotta deal with them.
I have multiple pieces of equipment for my landscape business that sit for almost a year between uses. Aerators are a prime example. When I put them away for awhile, I put fresh fuel in with Stabil and make sure to run them to get the Stabil fuel in the carb. 12 months later, they usually fire up on 2nd or 3rd pull and run perfectly.
