Same here.

Last season's fuel and the engine starts second pull on the cord, and runs fine. But it's a good idea to run the engine dry before storage (take off the fuel line and run it until it stops) as I believe deposits can form in the carburettor/injection system if you don't.

speacking as some one who repaired obms before retiring , un-leaded petrol does go stale over time , and i allways used a stabalizer in the fuel to prolong its storage life, and i reckon if all the profesionall boat people on this site wrote in they have at sometime had problems with stale fuel,just thought i would throw that into the pot !
