I believe the gas was probably last filled in September, so its roughly 3 months old. I hardly ever drive this thing. Its been driven no more than 450 miles since I bought it last December. However, at the very least, I do start and warm it up and drive it up the drive way once a week for street sweep.

Yes, Stabil may be a good idea for this. Actually, I may need to dump it in my other lingering projects as well
