Unless you add fresh fuel regularly you still stand the chance of the fuel going stale.

We have an I 125 Mio so injected. We use it for the wet market runs etc. not sure if yours is naturally aspirated but if so there is a possibility that if you drain it the carbie seals may dry out and crack leading to problems down the track. I own many vehicles in Oz that we stand down for 6 to 7 months every year, unleaded and diesel, all I do is disconnect the battery and 90% of the time they start first time, 10% is usually crook battery.

My personal experience with small engines is leave the fuel in the tank as long as it's under 2 years, after 18 months to 2 years the fuel loses its octane rating/goes stale. If you are only going for 6 months then put it up on blocks, disconnect the battery and take the keys.

Cheers, Steve.
