i just put mystery oil in the cylinders and turn the engine over 2 or 3 times and put the plugs back in, my dakota sat parked for about 10 years outside before i put it back on the road. my fj had the engine out for about 3 years before i found the time to get it up and running. i wouldnt want to be running a tank of gas thats going bad thru the carb every few months and i dont really trust gas stabilizers.
