    I posted this question earlier in the wrong thread ... Post outing, better to unplug the fuel line and run the engine dry or leave it connected? Weekly outings will be the norm.

    You should avoid running a 2 stroke dry. The fuel is where the lubrication comes from so running it dry often is ill-advised.

    If it's going to sit for a month or more, then consider draining it, otherwise there's no point.
