Re: Fill fuel tank?

Practically all car fuel tanks are now made of plastic as are the fuel lines so the problem rust or corrosion is negligible.

Aslo regular changes or draining the fuel filter on a diesel should reduce the risk of water entering the fuel system.

Regarding parked aircraft it is entirely for a different reason. On many aircraft the fuel tanks form part of the framework and inherent strength of its construction so by keeping them filled it reduces the risk of deformation or undue stresses.
