Hello folks,
My Atos was running fine and never had any problems with starting, but after disconnecting the battery and leaving the car parked without use for 6+ months, I cannot start it again. I've fully charged the battery. It cranks fine and strongly and if I throw some flammables into the TBI the motor shows signs of wanting to start. Given that, I'm very suspicious fuel is not coming at all, and it might be the fuel pump. Note: fuel tank is full to the top with brand new gasoline. I've read every other topic here about failures in starting and yet...

My main question is: why does leaving the car still would result in any damage to it?

Attached is a picture of me sitting in the car trying to figure out the problem. Many thanks.

Rather than banging your head on the steering wheel try banging the gas tank with a rubber mallet.

If the fuel pump is having a problem you can sometimes get it to work by vibrations (hitting the tank).
I would first verify the pump has B+ and ground.
