Petrol Disconnect or not

On my little 15 hp 4 stroke Mariner I have one of those quick disconnect petrol lines at the engine.

When the boat is not in use at home do you leave this connected or disconnect it. It is self sealing I think.

Same here, I still disconnect to let the engine run dry after use (when flushing)
