Drain the tank, change your water separator and filters and re-fill with good fuel and then purge the air out of the fuel lines and crank till it starts... What year is it? If it's a 6.0 just cycle the key on for 30 seconds then back off several times and the electric pump should fill the fuel bowls and prime the lines with good fuel once you've gotten the junk out of the tank... dry firing heui injectors can mushroom the tips and damage them so try to get as much air out before you start cranking as possible.
