I try to use the oldest fuel first. So I transfer the remaining fuel into the tank I normally use, and only put new fuel in the empty tank. If you go through several loads of fuel per year it makes no difference. I'm OCD, so everything logical makes some difference.

All these fuel filtering and management systems are impressive.

But someday another fellow will be trying to make sense of your old boat.

In the Navy its called a PDL, Pass Down Log where you have a system schematic , and operating instructions .
