1990 RS just wont run!!

i have a 90 RS, 6 cyl. before, i used to start it, it would take about 5 tries and then would finally fire up and run. i could rev it all day long and it would be fine. then i would take it for a test run and about 5 minutes into it, it would die. it would take a couple tries but i would get it fired up again just to limp it back home. now it wont start at all. ill turn the key and it will "start" but then just die right away, not even idle. ive replaced the plugs and wires and vacuum hoses. my car has been sitting since last july. i think maybe the gas in it is bad and there was condensation and that whatever is in the tank just lost its octane value enough to where the motor wont run anymore. besides the fuel and fuel filter, what else could it be??? thanks
