Lawn equipment and snowblower: like many, it seems, put the recommended amount in the gas can before going to the gas station. Filling up the gas can mixes it nicely.

Miata: the two tanks prior to storage, Stabil or StarTron gets mixed in based on my best guesstimate of the amount of fuel I'll be adding. No harm in slightly overdosing.

The biggest issue, according to my friends in the small engine business is the ethanol. Many issues with the rubber seals in the fuel system. For a while folks were switching away from StaBil to something specifically marketed as being good for ethanol stabilization but now StaBil has either switched their formula or their marketing on the bottle and they say they are good for fuels with ethanol in them also.
