Yes, recommend adding Stabil or Sea Foam fuel stabilizer to your fuel tank for any storage periods exceeding 3 months.

Yes, especially if you have ethanol based gasoline in the tank. Be sure to run it, as well as the generator for a good while to make sure it gets into the fuel system and carb of the genny. Cheers.

We have a wheelchair van that we no longer use. It has been left sitting for 6 months over two winters with temps down to 30 below. I just put Stabil in the tank and no problem when I started it in the spring. I also took it for a drive last week to flush the engine with fresh gasoline and exercise the tires.

Our B+ is stored over the winter. We always add stabilizer to the gas, top up the propane tank and take it out about every month for a short run. So far, never a problem.

If you area does not add ethanol to your gas. You do not need to put anything into the tank for the winter. If you have traveled and may have ethanol gas in your tank. Run the tank down to 1/8 of a tank and add real gas. Then drive it for a bit and run the generator for an hour and call it a day.

Around here real gas is expensive now days. It may cost more than those additives. But I have had engines sit for many years and still started with real gas in the tank.
