Absolutely good idea. Gas polymerizes(gets gummy) when left sitting. This can plug jets etc. Run motor, disconnedct fuel line. Motor will run for a few minutes until gas in carb is used up. Motor will speed up just before quitting. Remember to squirt some oil into spark plug hole and turn motor by hand a few times. Then store it.
