Hello, I'm Danny.
By just adding fresh gas after sitting 8 years might not get it started. How much gas was in the tank while sitting? The best thing to do is drop the tank and remove all old gas or if possible siphon all gas out of the tank. I would also suggest using the brand name SeaFoam additive gas treatment. I was able to start a car by using that after sitting 5 years. After draining old gas and adding new gas put the SeaFoam in and it should start after entering the intake system. It comes in a red and white bottle and is available at all auto parts stores. I've attached a picture below of what it looks like. Hope this helps and let us know if you have any further questions on this issue. Thanks for using 2CarPros.
