Largely I'd say gas is gas. Do you have any carb cleaner on hand? Get her running warm and spray some carb cleaner in where both pods are. Does the engine rev up when you do this? If it doesn't, You might have a weak spark due to crummy sparks, bad wires, or even a failing electrical system (feel free to check your battery voltage both when off and when running warm)

Are your gas lines seated properly in their spots on the carbs? I once didn't connect the lines properly and the carbs were getting starved of gas

If the electrical is good, hoses are good, and carb spray revs it up, I'd pull the carbs and do a cleaning of the carbs, jets, and floats
