TIM

Answer
Hello, my first impression is that it is losing fuel pressure, since it sat idle for that long there is a good chance that some rust formed in the tank, most of which may now be stuck in the fuel filter, it's located just under the intake manifold, I would highly recommend replacing it, then let me know the result.
