Did you add fuel stabilizer before you let it sit?

Try starting and pull the plug to see if the plug is wet with gas. If it isn't then you aren't getting fuel.

If it has been sitting for a while with gas/oil mix in it it could have stopped something up. If you have gas with ethanol in it then you may have a water problem. Fuel stabilizer helps prevent this.

Drain the tank and add new fresh fuel.
