The fuel should be usable, provided you've added a good stabilizer to it. Fuel polishing is a way of treating diesel fuel, by circulating it through a series of filters, to remove debris, sediment, water, algae, etc..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
