how much gas was left in it? u could try dumping a bottle of dry gas in the tank and than some fresh gas after it if there wasn't too much old gas sitting in it.

Exactly.

and use premium fuel to counteract the crappy stuff.

I'm not sure about that one, but can you disconnect the fuel line, add a piece of hose, and let the pump pump it out?

I have to do this on boats quite a bit. I connect to the pick-up on the tank and use a small 12 volt ignition-protected fuel pump. They are pretty cheap (about $25) at NAPA or other parts stores. ** Also work great for removing left over gas from your mower in the fall and your snow blower in the spring!**:smileup:

Yep, it's an alternative and I do it all the time.

Get as much out as possible. You could also disconnect the fuel line after the pump(assuming newer car with electric pump) and hook a hose to that outlet from the pump and run the pump to push all the fuel out. Just be careful not to run it too long and burn up the pump. A bottle of dry gas and new fuel as stated above afterwards.
