Should we empty the gas tank electricity japan

#

My neighbor that lives down the street saw me washing my boat after coming off the water the other day. I hadn’t seen him in long while, he had some sort of health problem, I didn’t want to ask what happened but I’d guess some sort of back issue. He has a few year old 18 foot Sundance Skiff and he said he hasn’t even started it in about a year and a half. He’s got a Suzuki 90 4 stroke on it. I guess he’s been laid up awhile! His problem is, last time out he filled the gas tank all the way with ethanol free gas. He says he’s never run ethanol gas in it and I believe him as our closest station has shell 90 octane ethanol and that’s what I run too. His question to me was, do I think the gas is bad, I said probably and suggested he empty the tank of it and fill it with new fuel. He also had it serviced at around 50 hours(the first service) about 2 1/2 years ago which I’m guessing is basically just an oil change? His lower unit has never been off, so the oil in that must be 3-4 years old as that’s about how old a boat it was. I run my boat at least once a month when it’s winter and I’m no expert so I told him to just leave everything be and I’ll post to the experts on here . I went down to his house today and boat just needs a good cleaning and it will look brand new.

Should he drain all that gas, he thinks it’s about 20 gallons and no he didn’t treat the gas as he said he never did with ethanol free gas? Its been outside covered for a year and a half and we are in Florida so he’s basically sat thru 2 hot summers. The tanks really almost full to Brim and at 3 bucks a gallon I don’t think he wants to dump it all

I’m by far no expert on motors that have sat that long so I’m not sure what he should do. He’s trying to get back in the swing of things and get back on the water. I can tell what he wants to do is clean up the boat, put ears on it and start it up and then take it to the gulf to run the gas out of it and fill it fresh. He’s just afraid to do that. I told him if he needs to drain the gas I’d help him out as I have a hand pump for siphoning gas that I think will work.
