Simple usually. Just look below the tank and before the carb. You should see a clear tube with fuel in it. It will have a pinch type collar on either end. Simply squeeze the tabs of the collar with a pliers,pull the hose free of it's male fitting and let drain into a bottle of some sort.

Here is a great video on how to do it safely:

Whenever equipment is sitting unused over several seasons or especially several years, the gas should be drained as it can create a lot of costly damage to the motor.
