Higher or lower quality fuels depending on fuel brand, will do different things to the metal in your motor. If your using a higher quality fuel's such as Werks or Byrons Gen 2 this schedule should be good.

If you will be running your car again within the next two days:
- Do nothing.

If you will run it within the next week:
- run the fuel out.

If you will be packing it up for longer than one week.
- Run fuel out
- Put 4 drops of after run oil in the carb, and 4 through the head button hole.
- Turn the motor over a few times by hand to get oil on the inner bearings.

If your packing your motor up for the winter:
- Run fuel out
- Put 10+ drops of after run oil in the carb, and 10+ through the head button hole.
- Turn the motor over a few times by hand and shake the oil around inside the motor, to get oil on the inner bearings and coat all surfaces.
- Seal the motor in a plastic zip lock bag
(Keep in mind it the air touching the metal surfaces is what helps create rust.)

This works very well for me, in fact I have had some motors that reach the 7-8 gallon mark before rebuilds with this method.

Other things to keep in mind:
- After run oil can ruin some glow plugs (Use an old plug to burn out the oil)
- Less expensive fuels might require after run oil immediately.
- Use carb, exhaust, fuel inlet caps to seal your motors up, and reduce air/moister exposure.
