If you're not going to use it for any prolonged period then you should winterise the engine properly and make sure there is no fuel in it.
Agreed.

I prefer a full tank of stabilised fuel rather than an empty tank, less risk of condensation.

The engine, not the tank, not sure it's the same with petrol but when I had diesels I'd always keep the tank full. There are those that say petrol goes off and don't fill up until you intend to go out but reckon that's rubbish.
