Default Car storage question

Hello everyone,
I will be putting away the bonny for the winter, I usually just change the oil and slap on winter or another set of tires just to save my Goodyears for the summer. I always
wondered whether it was better to fill the gas up to minimize water vapors or condensation in the tank. For the past couple of years, whatever was in the tank at the time was the amount of gas that stayed there for the next 6 months when the car is in storage, usually its at the half mark.

I say have a full tank, I think what you're saying about the water vapours and condensation would be about right.
