Need to check for fuel and spark. I would try a little starting fluid down the air intake, try & see if it fires off.

Try listening for the fuel pump to determine if it is pressurizing the fuel injection rails then pull a plug lead off and determine if there is a spark if you hold it next to a good ground point. If it is not fuel injected, try the starting fluid trick down the throat of the carb.

Is the fuel 3 years old and never started? Time to replace the fuel.
