    If he has had a lot of water in his fuel he could be in trouble,i.e injectors and injection pump could have rust on machine faced internal surfaces.You did not say what type of engine,age first thing to do is change fuel filter,clean out low pressure fuel lines,if it is old type diesel crack open injector pipes crank engine so to flush out old fuel.Give injector pump a good bleed through
    Fully charge battery and try to start,but give battery a rest after every 10 seconds of cranking.

    No fuel additive that i know of, you will have to drain it and chuck it.
