For a week. It really doesn't matter.

I've left my old TJ behind for 3+ weeks at a time when I used to travel constantly and never had an issue.

If you're leaving it sit for a month or more, you may want to throw in an additive to keep the Ethanol from eating anything, but it's not like the gas is going to go bad.

Is this a serious question?

I would leave it wherever it ended up. Full or empty makes no difference

I guess I would leave it full so you don't have to fill it up right when you get back;)

I think he's asking how long till fuel goes bad and if that time is reached, is it better to have a full tank or empty tank of bad gas and what damage occurs to the system with bad gas. Just guessing.

if you live in a humid environment, keeping the tank nearly full when parking for a week or two is the cheapest way to prevent water condensation, but I doubt it's a problem really considering how much ethanol is in our gas these days :)

i have had to travel for duty/work and have never had problems, i only used the stabilizer if it's like a few months, lol
