I don't know how much, but it was a lot. Did all the usual for this problem, new fuel pump to all new gass. Any help would be great.

This can be a real hair puller. If you got all the fuel that was contaminated out of the tank and replaced the filter and purged the lines and the fuel rail, then you might try replacement of the spark plugs and treating the fuel still in the tank with an emulsifier such as Berrymans B-12. If you did all this and you are patient, it should start. May I recommend a locking fuel door or cap?
