Best Fuel additive/Ethanol treatment should I get for storing over the winter?

I was just wondering what do you guys recommend to use when storing car's Motorcycles/ATV's Mowers and all other Gas Powered Equipment 2 and 4 cycle? Some of these items will be sitting for 6 Plus Months before the fuel is all used up.

Re: Best Fuel additive/Ethanol treatment should I get for storing over the winter?

I use STA-BIL Ethanol Treatment for E10 street fuel, or plain Sta-Bil for 100% gasoline. Been using the marine version in my boats and Wave runners for years of outdoor winter storage. Tip is to keep tank topped off before storing, less air in tank means less in/out of moisture as fuel expands/contracts with temp changes. Benefit of automotive design is our tanks are sealed (assuming EVAP system is functional) so not as much air exchange, if any, is happening.

As far as gas powered equipment, I've had no problems with E10 on my mower, but my less than 5 year old Echo leave blower and weed-eater both needed the fuel lines and fuel tank grommits changed with the E10 (grommits and seals turned gummy). That's a different problem, not storage related and won't be fixed by using a stabilizer. Just crappy choice by the manufactures not using ethanol capable stuff. Finding a source of 100% gasoline for yard tools eliminates that problem. But you still need stabil for the varnishing, gumming up carb prevention.
