If its bad or old gas, first chg. the fuel filter, then put some fuel additive in the tank like dry gas or fuel injector cleaner or fuel stablizer and fill it up with new gas and run it. when seting over the winter or a extended period of time it will collect moisture. The only way to get the old gas out is either siphen it out or drop the tank to get it out. I would do the additive its better than the alternative.

88 camaro wont start

Turn key on a listen for fuel pump running in tank. The fuel pump should run for 3 to 4 seconds and kick out. If not running try tapping bottom of tank with a soft hammer and fuel pump might start working but if this is the problem it will have to be replaced.
