It is best not to leave ANY fuel in the carbs or tank during storage. It is more common than you would think for something to prevent taking it back out of storage again for a few years and any gasoline will turn first to a gel and then to varnish as it evaporates. And besides that, any moisture that gets into the tank (a couple of drops when you fill up in the rain, condensation from moist air entering the tank on damp days &c) will end up on the bottom of the fuel because it is heavier so if you don't drain the tank so the water can evaporate it will find another way out (ever wonder why tanks rust out near the bottom?)
