I use ether for all of my ICE when hard to start (internal combustion engine), including injected. No diesel.

If you can hear the fuel pump whine, then change the fuel filter first. It could be plugging up or plugged.

Could be the old gas, but I've had them start and run, poorly, but run. Depends on lots of things.

No drain plug in these tanks, so maybe drain it via a drill pump or shipon.

Since you report the smell of gas, think you have something else, like a stuck open injector(s) or regulator gone bad.

Do you have a pressure guage to check the fuel line at the engine?
