Default Draining AV gas

Just wondering peoples experience with AV gas, leaving it in the sled for the summer. Do you normally drain and replace with fresh before the season? Current sled is a 17 Axys with a Silber kit.

I know AV has a longer shelf life than 91, but don’t have experience with this yet.

Thanks.

Leave it, its fine. Top up with fresh and good to go. Its has a much longer shelf life than 91 (years).

I never drain it just top it off AV gas has to meet a standard to keep octane rating of a year per aviation guide lines. At least it used to be when I was flying.

My routine is to top off the tank with Stabil and ethanol-free in the spring, then run a half can of Sea-Foam in the first fill of the season. Never had an issue, and I'm sure Avgas is even less likely to degrade. Actually, on that topic, I have a car that hit a deer a couple years ago and I haven't been able to scrape together the time, money, and room to fix (one of the downsides of building your own house, I'm lucky I rode at all last season) – anyway, I fire it up every six months or so, and so far it starts up like I'd run it yesterday.

If you've got time and money to burn and want to do the absolute safest thing, then drain and refill with fresh. Practically speaking though, unless the fuel you left in it was suspect, I say just run it.

I guess I am the minority here. I always drain mine and put fresh gas in. I don’t think the AV gas will go bad over the summer, however, there will be a little water from condensation. It takes me 20 minutes to pump it out and dump it in my Jeep and fill my sled up with fresh gas. Besides it's something to do while your waiting for it to snow

I run straight av in my junk. 17 Axys. I drain it and put in my lawnmower,weed eater and chainsaw oil for the winter. No need to waste money on stabil. Fill it with fresh. #7@3-6000 and never an issue. My siber runs flawless with straight AV an a splash of oil @ 7#. That is were people screw up. 865 miles when first belt let go. You wanted a hot rod sled. Feed it good.
