On outboards that allow for disconnection of the fuel line, I have always ran the fuel out of the engine after each use. I haven't had a 2 stroke since ethanol was introduced into gas, but even before ethanol, I didn't want to leave gas sitting in the carbs, so I would run it out to avoid any varnishing. My transon saver has a spring built in, so I usually tension it down about half way between no tension and bottoming out the spring. Hope this helps.
