I have a 2001 Saturn that has been sitting for a year. Nothing was done to stabilize the gas before it was parked. With the ethanol in the gas here in Minnesota what should I do to get this running again? I have not tried to crank it yet.

Not sure how much gas is in the tank?

So you have not tried to start it yet? How much gas is in it?

I haven't charged the battery yet or tried to start it. I'm not sure how much gas is in tank.

Just to add to this one if it was my car I would have the battery charged and tested. Also change the oil and filter and see if it starts and see how it runs. If it runs bad you will have remove the old fuel and put in some fresh fuel.

I have let cars set for over a yr and just added some new premium fuel since tank was low. Started and ran fine.
