shopper bike

yesterday our car ran out of fuel on our driveway. so I biked 4 km to Livarot on a rusty gear-less fold-up shopper with a jerrycan in a backpack. luckily it’s mostly downhill. a neighbour gave me (and the bike) a lift back up the hill to bethanie. the car still doesn’t start. think it needs bleeding or fuel filter cleaning. any advice?
