Before storing it, go to any Autozone, Advance Auto Parts, Walmart and buy one bottle of "STA-BIL STORAGE" Fuel Stabilizer. Pour it and fill up the tank to full, it will prevent your gas tank, lines and other components against corrosion and deterioration... that's it!!!

Depends on how long the storage is.
