Assume diesel engine ? so if water was in fuel ? the engine would not run even b4 it got to engine because fuel filter would rstrict diesel due to water on filter element ? can i just say that from your symptoms ? black smoke/engine runs but poor ? the fact it is black smoke? is most due to lack of air flow to manifold remove air filter element and see if smoke clears? if element of filter has got wet ie floods? it will not allow air through? make sure there is no other restriction/s on filter inlet and outlet pipe to manifold espcially check now for any weakness on pipe to engine from filter ie when you rev up look to see if hose is sucking together due to vacuum created by revs of engine? if injectors were defect ? the smoke would be blue due to over fuel injection ie injectors not atomizing correctly ? i would suspect problem is lack of air? out of curiosity?? how did water enter fuel tank ?? if any more info you can provide it may give better idea of problem ?
