You should have drained the fuel before you started it. I'd flush out the old fuel and lines and change the filter, and oil in the engine.

Check fuel pressure, if pressure is good then just darin and install new fuel, if no pressure, check fuel pump, they tend to go bad after sitting for a while, hoses get eaten up
