There's probably water condensation in the gas tank. When a vehicle is being stored it should be parked with a full tank of gasoline. Put a bottle of Drygas in the gas tank and see if that gets you going. Also, turn on the ignition key but don't try to start it. You should hear the fuel pump run for a few seconds. If not, no joke, hit the bottom center of the gas tank a few times with a hammer. If that gets you going it's definitely the fuel pump. HTH. -Jim
