Default Help starting 911 Turbo after storage

I need help, I have a 911 Turbo that sat in the garage for a little over a year. I kept the battery charged. what is the proper way? All I know is I need to take out the old gas. Now, how do I do that, Is there a drain plug in the gas tank? Does a siphon pump line make it to the bottom of the gas tank if done through gas tank opening? What about the gas lines and fuel pump? Should I use starting fluid after replacing gas and trying to start?

I had to use a generic fuel pump from Advanced Auto hooked up to a 12 volt supply to pump out most all of the 930's gas. That was for 2 year old gas. From what I understand, old gas burns fine but is hard to start, so by mixing it with new gas, you can safely use it. If you have half a tank, you might just add some fresh gas and it will probably drive fine.
