Winter Store & Fuel

Hi, Can anyone answer the following question?

We are just about to get our motorhome ready for the winter. My question is.... Should the fuel tank be full or empty?

Us three!

My hubby had a lot of trouble with the injectors on his Transit, turned out there was water in the diesel - he was told never to let his tank run too empty as it encourages condensation to form on the sides of the tank, potentially leading to costly injector problems.

If it's empty how will you get to your first destination when it's time to move?
