2010 Prowler fuel problem

I have a Prowler 550 XTHI with a fuel problem. The fuel is relatively old due to lack of use and I get it to run sometimes but then it stops and will not start. I need to know how to correct this problem.
I added a fuel treatment and it ran for a few days but the problem is back and it will not start.

pull tank and get ride of the old fuel ... add fuel cleaner conditioner to the fuel .. start and run for a while to help the cleaner do it's job in the carb ... or pull the carb also and thoroughly clean it ... system must be cleaned out 100% lines included

welcome to the house Oldman from another old man

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Welcome Oldman, and like Gary from another old man! Pulling the tank would be best, but if that fails, then siphon will work. Like Gary said, flush everything out, and clean then new gas.
