My vr 5speed has been sitting there for over a year with less than 10 litters of fuel, now I'm getting her back on the road I put 20 litters in it. When I drove her she was fluttering like the it isn't getting fuel. Because it sat there for so long has the fuel gone rotten and will it fix it if I fill the tank, put engine cleaner with the fuel and change the fuel filter?

sitting for so long with bugger all fuel wouldn't be too good for the pump.
however I would drain the fuel & put fresh stuff in for the initial testing as the fuel may be off after so long sitting.
