not to be a bummer but draining a weedeater for winter should be easy enough. I do agree tru fuel and husqvarna pre mix have a much better shelf life, still not forever though.
Aaah but most people don't drain and then they wonder why they have problems. But just draining gas tank won't do either, you still have fuel in carb if u don't run it till it dies.

I am a Tru fuel believer , I buy it in 5 gallon containers at a time in 4 cycle and then use it on my restored tractors that run only a couple times a year so I dont have to worry about draining the tanks or having NLA carb parts be destroyed by ethanol. I also use it it my vintage and current 2 cycle equipment and mix the oil myself. I have found even the old ones idle much better on this pure gas compared to watered down fuel they sell today.

I have good luck with ethanol free and sta-bil

Since I started using it in my 2 cycle equipment about 4 years or more ago, I have had do do absolutely nothing to them but start them up and use them. outside of sharpening chain saw chains and putting new line on the line trimmers.

Yup, ditto on what the Doc says, you can drain all you want but unless you tear the carb down to clean it on your two strokes the Ethanol will eventually take its toll. I run ethanol free 90 oct. in all my GT's and the premixed in the two stroke stuff,I feel I have too much money in my power equipment and GT collection to run junk gas also I'm sick of pulling carbs to clean and rebuild, higher octane means cleaner burn, stuff runs cooler, IMO worth it.
Here we have one gas station who sells 91 octane pure gasoline no ethanol. Run that in all mowers and trimmers. Fixed alot of "problems" within a couple tanks.

I can get ethanol free 91 at many gas stations around here, use it in everything but the truck, including the Farmall, cost more but worth it.

I am one of those 91 octane ethanol free guys. Not much carb problem here either.

I run MMO (Marvels Mystery Oil) in my fuel and it helps a lot. Only thing I don't like about running the carb dry is if you don't use it for a while the fuel dries out and leaves residue behind. With MMO in your fuel it leaves a protective coating that keeps that white crap from building up. Also puts a bit of lube though the intake for the cylinder & valves. You may see a hint of smoke here and there if you add to much or even foul a plug but for me I prefer to change a plug then to rebuild the carb.

that stuff is like 7-9$ a can here (1 quart cans) thats upwards of 40$ a gallon!!!! id be dead broke with all my 2-smokes. i use redline all sport oil for air cooled engines (70$) a gallon and shell 93 vpower. if im not gonna use the engine for longer then a month i simply pour a small cap full of fuel stabilzer in the tank run it and thats it. dont run it out of fuel or drain the tank.
if ever i was to have a problem a carb kit,lines and filter 15$ or less good for another 10yrs+
i guess it has its place but not for my usage
