This all depends on how often you use your skiff and what kind of fuel you put in it.

If you use your skiff regularly it is irrelevant but if you have long lay ups it is important to leave the tank full. Non ethanol fuel also has its benefits and is less costly due to a "microskiff" having fuel consumption often at 8-10mpg. With that being said I run ethanol fuel in my other boat and haven't had any issues 600+ hours. (don't go from non ethanol to ethanol as it will "clean" your fuel system and clog your filters/carbs etc).

Get in the routine of starting the boat once a week on hose, turn left right, outboard up down. Prevents a lot of issues as well.
