A full tank of gas is less dangerous than a half empty one Several members do it with no harm so far.

You'll probably get busted sitting on it and making 'vroom vroom' noises.

gas vapors are what is explosive. Gas alone will just burn, the vapors become extremely explosive. With a full tank there is nowhere for vapors to build up thus causing much less explosion risk.

Gas vapor is easier to light and explosive. Pure gasoline is hard to light, think fuel to air mixture in your engine.

While I DO NOT recommend this when I raced I knew people that would throw a lit cigarette in an open gas container (parts washing) to freak people. As long as the vapors had not built open (thus open container vs can) and the butt was not cherry red the butt will just go out Remember don't try it at home.

Re: any harm in leaving bike in house for winter?

I keep my bike in my house/apartment. I've never had any issues w/ fumes until I started running VP fuel. That chit is strong and the fumes seem to seep out easier & are much stronger than 93. Now I just keep it out of the living room (my garage!) and back in the Laundry room....and put in some 93 when it sets for while to help reduce some of the VP fumes.

If you are running any of the VP oxygenated fuels, then the o2 is in a constant state of expansion and will escape through any possible vent (ie overflow tec.). I have several 55 and 30 gallon drums that look like balloons after sitting for any length of time with mr2 or any of the o2 treated fuels.

I run oxygenated fuel in my dirt bike, and when I'm outside on a warm day I can hear the cans "ping" as it expands and contracts.

That stuff permeates metal, I swear...

Put some stabil in there and fill it up

That is a really good idea, perfect opportunity to get a lady up there to do some modeling on your bike And perhaps have sex on the bike for the first time

smart. They are just too easy to steal. My boy Jason in Dallas, had been riding a relic POS from 1980 to learn on. After 6 mos I gave him some encouragement and he bought a F4i in '01 on one of Honda's great % rate deals. He was just going to get liab. only on it and I talked him into at least getting theft. I told him to get a storage unit and he thought he'd be alright chaining it to his carport and boxing it in. Boy was he wrong, I think he had it 2 weeks before it got stolen. They found the bike, arrested someone and but he had it totalled and got another one. This time he bought 2 more chains, making it 3 and they took that one too. I think they left the front or rear wheel still chained to the carport. That was 3 weeks after he got the 2nd F4i. And I had told him over and over to store it in a storage unit for $40 a month. He never listened, at least he listened to me enough to get theft insurance. He quit riding after the 2nd got ripped and he never did buy any gear worth a **** either
