How can I flush the fuel from my Morgan 4/4 after storing it for nine months?

After fitting a new battery, my little Morgan 4/4 started ok after hibernation. But it's not running sweetly and I put it down to tired petrol; 3/4 full and at least nine months old. What shall I do?

Have the tank and fuel system drained and flushed out. There are quite a few specialists doing this because of the number of people who fill diesel cars with petrol. One is www.autofuelfix.co.uk
