SOURCE: Contaminated fuel
Your best bet is to contact the station where the fuel was purchaced and demand that they pay to have the tank removed and cleaned.Plus ,gasoline can cause internal (diesel) engine damage. The engine should also be tested for damage,especially with regard to cylinder compression pressure.

I'd be inclined to drop the bowl off the carburetor and make sure the needle and seat aren't stuck and that the float is opening and closing the needle.

the needle and seat is probably stuck in the carb,rebuilding this unit is very tricky id suggest you take it to a shop that can rebuild it for you

do not worry about draining it, pour about 6 to 8 ounces of engine oil in it, and top it up with fresh fuel, it will be fine. The only way to drain the tank is to remove it and turn it over.
