Help Alfa 156 2.0 Lusso TS -won't start... Help Alfa Newbie!

I've been storing an 03 156 for a friend, it has been SORN'd in my car park since October. The battery was not surprisingly dead, however it started fine once it had been charged. It warned me about "Motor Control System Failure" -but it had been doing that when it was last run.

I drove it for about 10 mins, mainly to scrape the rust off the breaks, then it stalled, and could only be restarted with difficulty. ~The engine had no power and was probably only running on 3 cylinders, eventually it stopped again and now it refuses to start at all.

I'm guessing it's most likely a fuel supply problem.

Any hints/suggestions?
