Take the tank to a shop and have it properly cleaned. It is not a quick process but you know as well as everyone that it is absolutely necessary. Old gas turns to varnish and it does not dissolve in new gas. Along with the varnish will be rust and dirt deposits encased in the varnish. It will continue to hamper your entire fuel system fouling the filter, pump, carburetor, and finally the valves. After that much time sitting a rebuild of the fuel pump and carburetor are also necessary if you want to enjoy driving it. Like the old Fram ads slogan, "Pay me now or pay me later".
