Thank you, for the advice.
With adding the stabil should i leave the tank as empty as possible or does it matter?

In that tractor a couple of gallons is adequate, full is also adequate. Draining it is asking for rust, leaving it nearly empty is asking for more rust.

Funny the oldest tractor I have has always been parked with an empty tank and that tank is nice a clean has has been since 1935 when it was built. As is most of the tanks I have on the tractors I have

To each his own--I think the worst results occur when the tank is almost empty, the remaining gas evaporates leaving a bunch of crud, that is the biggest problem. As to empty, when I remove a gas tank doing my restorations, it may sit for months. I turn it any way I can get it to get all the gas out. It dries out in a short time and there is no problem later. However it is done the point is to avoid rust, however you do it.
