Even a small amount of bad gas can cause your problem.
So the first thing you need to do is remove your fuel tank so you can drain all of the old fuel out,then remove the fuel sending unit and fuel pump assembly thats in your fuel tank and clean the filter screen, after that you can reinstall the fuel tank,replace your fuel filter and I would have a fuel injector sevice done.
Unless you are very skilled in automotive repair, leave this one to a pro.

ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

As with any no start issue, someone will need to check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure at the injectors to proceed.
Could be a relay or the fuel pump, or a long list of things.

I have 97 cavalier not sure if i had gotten bad gas think so drove over 500 miles no problem went to different little gas station 40 min later driving started to have problems wanted to stall when trying...

use a tank of high test 93 octane, had the same type of problem with my 97 cavalier 2.2 ltr motor. If I would shut the car off for a few minutes and then restart it, it would drive normal again for a while. This would typically happen on hot days especially if you are sitting in traffic. A fillup with 93 octane gas for some reason would seen to solve the problems for a few weeks even after filling up with normal low octane 87 gas after the high octane fillup. I found no reason for this behavior and I am a mechanic all I know is that the car hasn't done this for me in some time and no repairs had been done, just one of those weird things cars do once in a while. mine has 277,000 miles and still running

Car has not been driven much. Last i drove it it

Low fuell engine light came on and i drove the car about 4 miles home. the next day the car would not start. I put 5 gal. of gas into it but it still wont start.

running low on fuel with a electronic fuel pump is not a wise idea that can cause the fuel pump to run dry and lock up!! also can airlock the fuel lines check the fuel filter to see if it's clogged up! also losen the fuel line at the filter and crank the engine to see if its pumping if not then change the pump

dont do it. fuel injectors fuel filters and plugs may need to be replaced I would not take the chance. some people say fill the tank the rest of the way with regualr unleaded gas I say "NO" there is to much at stake like a complete cleanout of the engine and fuel system and this could cost thousand yes thousands of dollars
