Running the engine dry (ie disconnecting the fuel line, or shutting off the fuel valve) would also probably help in preventing the carb from getting clogged. I have a couple two cycle engines, and I try to shut them off by cutting off the fuel supply, instead of turning the on/off switch. Especially if I know the engine is going to sit awhile without use.
