You have a fuel delivery problem. Flush the entire fuel system and replace the old fuel for new. Check the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge and test the injectors by taking the fuel rail and injectors off the intake manifold and cranking the engine with the injectors squirting in a container (careful with this, you may need to tie the injectors to the rail). if any of the injectors aren't firing or have a bad spray pattern, have them cleaned or replaced.

Being parked for 11 years the gasoline will gel, in other words I agree about flushing the entire system, get that shit out ... there is no additive that after that long will dissolve the gunk that has formed. Do what Lars suggested. And change the oil and coolant while you're at it
