One owner car, so history is known. Car was parked inside garage as a spare and not cranked very often. Battery died. Long story short when battery replaced with new one, car wouldn't crank. Turns over fine. Was working fine when parked. Acts like it is out of gas and gauge seems to be on empty. Fuel level when parked is not recalled, but car was not out of gas and no fuel has leaked in garage. Garage is attached to a house. We absolutely would have noticed a fuel leak, and in case it magically ran out right when parked, I added a couple of gallons to tank. No change. Never "hits" at all, just turns over. Would gauge failure and possible loss of fuel delivery point to a ground issue from tank? Where should I check first? Note that car has not cranked in 2 or 3 years at this point. Again, my limited mechanic's skills can't help but thing of a poor connection at some junction made worse by years on non-use.
