Hello, my name is***** will be assisting yo today. First item that you need to check is the VST and make sure that there is no water in it. There is a small drain hose located on he bottom of it that you can put into a clear jar, then open the drain screw and allow it to drain out. If you see two layers inside the jar, you have water in the fuel and this will need to be pumped out before you can run the engine. If you do not see that, please let me know and we can continue to troubleshoot the engine.
