S15 has not been drivin in 2 years.S15

I've been away from home for 2 years and my s15 has pretty much been sitting in a garage for that time.
It was driven once briefly about 1 year ago.
There is very little fuel left in the tank, almost empty.
What should I do to get it road ready again?
Oil + filter change? Fuel filter? Spark plugs?
Any ideas would be appreciated.

There is a couple of ways you can do this.
Remove the fuse for the fuel pump under the dash drivers seat side.
Or remove the CAS plug in the engine bay.
Then crank over your engine for 10-20 seconds to get the oil around the engine. Then plug the CAS or fuse back in and then start it up.

No way I'd drive it without changing oil first. That 2+ yr old oil has certainly degraded and won't lubricate optimally. I'd drop oil again after driving first time to flush the motor entirely. I'd also absolutely do spark plugs. Add to that fuel filter, coolant flush and brake/clutch fluid. I guess it depends on how particular you are with your car.

I would be even inclined in replacing the fuel pump.
