Thumbs down White smoke and CEL

So here's my problem. A week ago my Water In Fuel Separator message came up. I drove about 5 miles till I came to a good spot to drain the water. A ounce or two came out and I proceeded about my day driving as normal. The next day it came on again and I drained again but not much if any water came out. Well the next day I go to start the truck and the CEL came on and was running in a rough idle so I killed the motor. Didn't drive it at all for a few days and then tried it again. it was running fine, I then took off and it started rough chugging so I turned around in driveway and parked it. Changed both filters and its blowing lots of white smoke and light is still on. Any ideas gentlemen?

I did do a DPF and DOC delete with a 4.0+ about 3 months ago.

Were you able to read the code? When was the last time you put diesel?

No I haven't read the code yet. But I added fuel just a day before all of this went down. Water in the fuel is a very real possibility for me because I've been using fuel from 55 gallon drums on my property. In fact I know most of the drums had ice chunks in them after draining them this winter.

It sounds like you got some bad fuel. Maybe try adding some diesel treatment?

I know there's water in the fuel but after this code shows up the injector is toast right? Its a steady white cloud out the pipe.

Is there any way to tell if the piston is damaged without head removal? Compression test?

Do you have more blow by than usual? Has any oil been pushed out of the CCV?

My blow by is probably standard. But the truck shakes violently and won't stay running. I found this ice after emptying a 55 gallon barrel sir. I didn't have prior knowledge.
