I have been using stabilizer for storage on Motorcycles, Lawn Mowers, Yard Tools, Snow Blowers and My '48 Buick for well pretty much for ever.

I've never had a problem.

Metal Tanks need to be kept FULL to prevent condensation, Plastic Tanks no real worry.

Yup, Stabil into fresh gas, and put in all lawnmowers, chainsaws, blowers, bikes, etc.

Yes and do drain the carb! Should have a drain plug but if not, just shut off the fuel and run it dry.

I try to run each of my bikes through the winter, even if this is just in the garage. I alway run the carb out of gas when I park.

Run them for 20 minutes to ensure the exhaust gets hot enough to burn off any condensation or your exhausts may rust quicker.
At least that is what I have heard. I just leave mine without starting.

I always have Stabil in the lawn mower & snow blower. I add it to the gas can when I fill it up. That makes it easy to add the correct amount because you know how much you just bought.

For bikes, I fill the tank with ethanol free gas, add Stabil, let it sit for a while, and then ride the bike for 15 to 20 miles.

I ride to a gas station with a non-topped off tank, add the appropriate amount of Sta-Bil recommended for the tank, top off, and then ride for 5-10 miles to ensure that the mixture has circulated through my fuel lines and carburetor. Once I get home, I drain my bowls and throw the battery on the tender. I used to change oil at this time as well, but now I just do it after the first Spring ride.
