All I have ever done with my outboard (1990 40hp Evinrude) is top off the gas tank and add fuel stabilizer. I then run the outboard for about five minutes with the hose muffs attached to distribute the stabilizer, and I'm done.

This will be my fourth year doing it this way, and my engine has always started on the first crank in the spring. My fuel tank only holds six gallons, so your mileage may vary (pun intended).
