Hi there,If the fuel is 9 months old, I would drain the tank down and fill with fresh fuel.Fuel these days has a "useful" shelf life of about 1 month max.A squirt of carb cleaner in the throttle body may allow it to start and run for a short period.This will tell you the fuel is the culprit.Could also be a seized fuel pump.Gary
