Defender winter storage

Just wondering if it is better to store my defender with a full tank of gas or a almost empty tank. Any suggestions would be great. I tend to drive it right until the salt trucks come out and then it's in the garage for atleast a couple months. Is there anything else I should think of doing before I park it and throw the cover on it?
Thanks

Put fuel stabilizer in the gas and follow the instructions. Normally, run engine for five minutes to circulate the stabilizer/fue mixture. Our fuel tanks are plastic and won't rust, but our fuel lines can.

Also give it a good bath (especially underneath) and put it to bed clean. Might consider putting the battery on trickle charge for the winter.

Is there a better fuel stabilizer than others?

I was planning on getting the undercarriage Ziebarted. Is the product that they use as good as Waxoyl? Anyone have anything bad to say about Ziebart?

I've been told that STA-BIL is one of the best!

Also, I store my things with a full tank. That way there is less room for air. The air contains water vapor and can condense and add water to the fuel. I use Sta Bil.
