  • Full tank so you can go out and ride.

  • That's what I said in an earlier comment. I do that now instead of leaving it sit dry. Works better for me. When its cold it just doesn't get ridden as much cause of all the other stuff going on. Deer season especially.

  • Go to your local airport and buy some 100Low lead aviation gas, the stuff is designed to sit for over 5 years and not go bad. Also it's the purest gasoline you can buy.

  • I just put an ounce of the red Sta-bil gas treatment in the tanks of my quads, lawnmower & snowblower through the winter and have never had any issues

    And if your not gonna ride your quad at all through winter get a battery tender to keep battery charged and start it like once a week but always treat gas with Sta-bil for added protection from the ethanol number 1 cause of damage in small engines

  • Forgot to note, 100LL gas has zero ethanol content.

  • You can just buy jet fuel?

  • Yeah, jet fuel is just deisel with no road tax, AVA gas is just extremely pure gasoline.

  • Be warned AV gas is like $6 ish a gallon. But it also cleans junk out of your fuel system

  • People go buy it for their ultralights all the time
