1990 Honda Civic DX

I have a 1990 Honda Civic that i recently purchased, when test driving the car it started fine as well multiple other times we started it. When we put $10 gas in it, it suddenly would not start. When we returned and hour later it started fine. The car has spark and will turn over, but just wont start consistently. But when the car does start it runs just fine. When we got it home it stopped starting but later started fine. Any hint of what could be wrong would help. Thanks
