    Make sure you have fuel pressure. Make sure you have spark. Figure where the problem lies.

    By it won't start, I assume the starter fire, the engine turns over but doesn't start or...?

    6 gallons is plenty. 3 gallons and it starts to choke...

    Make sure its got enough to not choke itself basically. Then listen to see if the pump is actually going. Then check to see if you still have spark. And work from there.

    Amount of gas is going to be the issue as much as that 3000gt cl ad you sent me wasn't a base model Darwin ;-P.

    6 gallons ought to be fine, cant hurt to put more in but that aint your problem my friend

    running a pump dry is no good for the pump...flip the carpet back and have someone turn on the key, let us know if you hear it...
