Turbs is correct but at what point does it create a problem?

Before ethanol was common in gasoline, I put "Gas Line Antifreeze" in my tank to remove moisture. That stuff was nothing but alcohol. It absorbed water and then flowed to the carburetor and was burned.

How's this for an ideal solution?

Keep the tank full, then at least once per month go camping and use it all up. That avoids stale gas, moisture in the tank, and household chores.

LOL I think you are referring to a post that I deleted. I felt it did not have enough "tonal quality" for the season.

What I will post is that if one was to read their hymnal (owners manual) one would find where the manufacturer recommends filling the tank for storage!
2014 F-53 reference is on page 88.
2014 E450 reference is on page 240.
You can find it at owners.ford.com.
I'm not a mechanical engineer but I did work in a fuel testing lab back when my hair was short and I had some and I can tell you that you do not want H2O in your benzine or algae in your cooking oil. So whatever method you choose, be safe and enjoy your RV.

I use stabil in all gas products that sit. Keep the tanks topped off so they are ready for use. My diesel doe not sit long enough to worry, it's the DD.
