up to you, but me;
I always park my car for long term storage with a FULL tank (always runs on premium).
When I return i give her an oil change and radiator flush while the battery gets a fresh charge and check tyre pressures. Then go for a long drive....

If you're really worried about stale fuel, put a bottle of treatment in and fill the tank up to help dilute the feral petty...

im pretty sure after 3 months of sitting in a petrol tank doing nothing, petrol goes a bit stale (if thats the correct word to use).

so i'd reccomend new fuel ;)

Just throw in a jerry can of fresh fuel and some octane booster, probably dont even need it but it wont hurt.

When you get to a serve be sure to fill it up with 95 or 98, should be fine even with regular but if you are worried about the fuel it cant do any harm either.

After you stick the hose in the tank, pour some petrol down it so the hose is full then drop the end in a bucket. The petrol will come out straight away without having to suck on it and get a gob full of Mmmmmm tasty fuel ;-)
