Oh boy... how long was that gas sitting and are you sure it was gas and not an oil/gas mix?? Gas does go stale. Have you put fresh gas in since?

Most gasoline's in the US are the 10% Ethanol blend. They only have a shelf life of 90 days - under ideal conditions. The older the gas is - the more water that is in it. Adding very old gas to a nearly empty gas tank is a recipe for problems.
