Fuel has been sitting in 2nd tank...ok to use?

Ever since I've owned the truck, I've been using the front tank regularly with the rear tank as a backup. Currently the rear tank is about 1/2 full. I filled it the first time I fueled the truck a few months ago and haven't touched it since. I doing a small road trip tomorrow and was thinking to use the rear tank to empty some of the fuel. Is this a good idea given that the fuel has been sitting in the tank for a few months?

Add some treatment to it and run it, or top it off with fresh fuel, since you have been driving it it is still being moved around in there

Power Service Diesel Kleen if available. I switch tanks at every fill. One tank is always full except on long trips.
