Hi, did you check the spark plug wires or the plugs.

Hi hippievan and welcome to IRV2!

Love the screen name, in my younger days I called mine a surfer van.

Water in the fuel tank sounds about right. Sounds like you have already found the problem, just not repaired yet. To verify water in the tank, pull the fuel filter and drain it into a cup or soda bottle, let settle and see if water is in bottom of cup. If so, running the engine out of gas won't solve because water is heavier then fuel and will sit below the fuel pick up tube. The only way to be sure to get all the water out is to remove the tank and clean it out. There are fuel additives for this concern, but only for small amounts of water, I think it's called fuel drier, basically it's woodgrain alcohol.
The problem is these tanks are big and if you have a drivability concern it is probably too late to dilute the water and run it out.
Good luck

I wonder if you could have a faulty crankshaft position sensor or faulty throttle position sensor?? Just a thought

The lean codes you were getting are the biggest clue. The CPS and TPS will set different codes. Spark plugs or coils would also set a different code. It is common for lean codes to set when there is water in the fuel. The PCM detects all ignition and other sensors are ok, water will not burn and tricks the PCM into thinking the fuel system is too lean.

In South Alabama it's only 19 degrees. I got a load of bad diesel several years ago that was so bad that I had to drop the tank and drain it. I kept some in a jar to show the service station I got it from (had the receipt). It was a reputable station and their records confirmed that they had a problem previous to my tankful. I had the tank, engine cleaned; and two fuel filters. Their Insurance Co paid the tab. I always keep the receipts especially now! Hope your drain will get it all, but you may have to drop and drain that tank-good luck!

Wonder if the 00 V10 is approved for corn gas and if this could be part of the problem?

still no luck disconnected convertor same problem 3/4 to full throttle acts like not getting fuel tried mass air flow sensor, fuel filter, drained fuel tank tried sea foam, new knock sensor
fuel pressure good can't find or hear any vacuum leaks keeps throwing lean codes
and knock sensor code. another gut is having the exact same problem on a ford forum site he can't figure it out either. both our vehicles had sat for a couple of months ran fine before sitting up. still runs fine in town driving as long as you dont have to accelerate hard. ??????????????
