Probably would be a good idea to drain your fuel tank. If you've had a tank that's been less than full you may have accumulated some water in it. I'd drain it and flush my fuel lines. Wouldn't be a bad idea to drain and change the coolant. Pull your plugs and squirt a little WD40 in the cylinders and turn the engine over a few times manually. You'll smoke a little on startup but it may save you some cylinder wall damage. Good luck!
