97 SH starting problems (weird)

I have a 97 SH. I just bought it from a guy.
He just got it serviced by a Honda dealership.
It ran fantastic while test driving and the drive home (almost 100 miles).
Ran the second day with slight start delay, then after a 1 minute warm up
or so, it ran normal.

Then a few days later I went to start it up, and it wouldn't start.
I even tried compression starting. It would not start.

The car will turn over and you'll hear electricity flow and try to start; it's just
never successful. It almost seems like there's no fuel in there.
A guy I met said, when a tank is stored empty, especially in cold weather, for a while condensation can build inside the tank and then contaminate the fuel. Ice can build up where it's not supposed to. (in tank and fuel filter)

The car was stored empty and the weather is currently pretty cold. Frost and ice every night. (17F lows). Now it's 40F (degrees)

Am I making any sense?

Any input on what this could be would be appreciated.
Thank you!

Try this...

Around the winter season I usually put this in to prevent any condensation from building up!!! It's actually pretty good n cheap ($2-$3)!!!
