Fuel, and if it has sat that long with this garbage they call fuel then you really need to get as much out of the tanks as possible, then quickly check the fuel pumps just too make sure they work, if not now would be the ideal time to replace them and the fuel filter and fuel pump relay, better change the oil and filter while your under there also. After all that then see if it will fire and run, you may still have to do,a tune up on the engine but at least you know it will run by then.

Do not spray ether or other starting fluid directly into the air filter.
