    Definitely DO NOT start it up immediately! My dad and his older brother made this mistake with my Grandma's '87 Mercedes 300E back in 2003, and it had been sitting for a little over a year. Drain the gas tank, flush and replace all fluids, clean fuel injectors, and do a complete tune-up.

    I'm not a mechanic by any means, but I know a thing or two and I think it'll be fine if handled correctly!
