    I would assume you wanted to make sure it was still in good shape first thing.. Depending on how long since it was last used and if it still has fuel left in it, you may want to run some sort of fungicide incase there is some residual fungus in the tank..

    Otherwise I think I would try to rinse it out just to get any rust, crud, or other misc stuff out of the tank..

    good luck

    I would add 32 oz of power service in the white bottle to 55 gallon of fuel in addition to making sure tank is free and clear of dirt rust and water.
