I typically stop the gasoline engine after flying it and leave the fuel in the carb. When done for the day, I drain the fuel tank, and then plug the vent line. I leave the fuel in the carb too. Many people just leave the gasoline in the fuel tank and don't drain it too.It is like how we treat our trimmer engines, lawn mowers, cars, et cetera. I would suggest plugging the vent line so the gasoline doesn't evaporate too much before you go to use the plane again. So your choice, drain the fuel tank or leave the fuel in it. Either way is acceptable.
