Etec Winterising

I had a routine with the Opti that involved fogging oil and fuel stabiliser or combine an end of season service with a winterise.
Are there any particular tips that I should be aware of when putting the new Etec to bed?
It'll get a a good flush, tank fill-up and fuel stabiliser, stall on fogging oil and a whiff of GT85 under the cover.
It's done 50 hrs this season and not due a service for another 2.5yrs.

Crikey is it that time of year already? Having never owned an etec I could be wrong but I thought they has some special process built in to the electrickery to put them in a winterise mode?

The Etec has an automated winterising program, you connect it up to the flush muffs and start the program running it basically fogs the cylinder with XD100 and I think it purges the fuel system
