Guys remember something. These old girls have survived over 50+ years, if they had caught on fire, you wouldn't currently have it. Safety measures are always a good thing. Don't go nuts. I actually take my batteries out for the winter (since my sheds are not heated), and put all my batteries in the basement and each has it's own trickle charger. Leaking fuel is absolutely the biggest risk on these old girls and much more of a hazard than the electrical.
so, I run the fuel out as best I can in the fall, and for some, actualy drain them.
Some good practices here.........just no need to go overboard.
