Default 1992 Toyota Celica ST

So about a week ago I bought a 1992 Toyota Celica St, I had to trailer it home cause it doesn't stay running.... Had a couple friends tell me it's bad gas-separated gas. Any way I was told to dump some dry gas into it and it should be ok. I did that but it still doesn't hold it's power to long. So my question is do I put some more Dry gas in my tank and keep letting it suck the water from the gas til it runs right or do I Drain my gas tank and fill it fresh and add octane boost.........Any opinions out there

ok so so far what i did to this since i bought it is the following......
1. Charged the battery
2. New Spark Plugs
3. Placed dry gas in tank
4. Took fuel pump out to look at it but the pump is working fine
5. Looked at all the fuses they are fine


Still have no freaking clue as to what is wrong. The car starts up fine and runs great, For bout 2 minutes and then shuts off. Even when I put it in gear it chokes and shuts it self off....Trying my hardest to figure this out by the end of the week cause i dont want it sitting where it is sitting.

I'm gonna try some octane boost in the gas tank to see if that helps.......PLEASE IF ANYBODY HAS ANY ADVICE I'LL TAKE ANYTHING AND TRY IT OUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GIVE IT TOO ME.........

Default Celica problems

Doesn't sound like bad gas to me, besides, fuel is much more stable than it used to be and can usually sit up to a year without degrading. If it runs for a few minutes, then stalls, certainly someone should inspect the fuel pressure to determine if fuel pressure drops when the fuel pump gets hot. Also, when the vehicle stalls, pull a spark plug wire and check for good spark (nice and blue, will leap 1" at least. If ok, concentrate on the fuel system. If not, time to start the diagnosis on the ignition system i.e. coil, pickup coil in distributor, cap, wires, rotor etc.
Good luck,

Seems like injectors are clog or engine timing is off.

My brother got a 1988 Celica. He changed the engine to the 3rd generation. Quite fast!

Doesn't sound like bad gas to me at all to be honest.
