Default Fuel question

Just curious, I normally don't leave much fuel in the boat when I'm done for the weekend, however, I sucked up some junk and pulled the boat with half a tank, how long is it ok to let it sit with that much fuel? It's only been a week.......

Mine sits with 100 plus gallons in it all the time.

Several winters I had full tanks over the entire winter. You'll be fine.

You can go up to a month on E10 fuel and probably 2 months on non ethanol fuel without needing any stabil or other additives.

E10 = 10% ethanol in the fuel.

I use Valvtech year around. It helps with the ethanol. My boat sits in the garage over the winter (7 months here) with a full tank. No problems.

Where do you purchase, probably good to run anyway to help keep motor clean.
