Possibly the starter went out.

Could be the fuel in the tank. Did you add stabilizer before setting it up for the winter. One big, and I mean big problem with ethanol based fuel is it attracts water.

fuel wouldnt stop it from turning over

Sorry. I took turning over as starting. So the vehicle will not crank, correct. Check the solenoid and see it is getting 12 volts across it. Clicking noise usually means either the starter is bad or not receiving proper voltage. If voltage is present take a hammer and tap with medium pressure on the starter, no banging. If it starts, replace the starter.
