A basic guide is a well used one has a slightly lower chance of carb issues as the fuel is not allowed to sit for long periods of time. If it looks good, runs good, and has been mechanically taken care off, than it is more than likely a decent gamble.
Ultra low miles is a great find, but storage history becomes a major issue. The tanks are not huge so it does not take too many months of non-use for the water suspended in the ethanol to potentially start an issue with gunk or rust.
