Kerosene is fine for your diesel.
It need some lubrication supplement because all of the natural lubes have been removed.

If it's been sitting that long, especially if it's been in an unsealed container, some of the lighter hydrocarboins will have flashed off. That's no big deal, but I'd make sure to blend it with fresh diesel at least 50/50.
Also, if it's in a large contianer like a drum or barrel I wouldn't stir it or pull from the bottom of the barrel. There will probably be some sediment down there that has settled out naturally.

How much of this stuff do you have?

If it's been in sealed cans then it sounds like you won't have to worry about the things I mentioned. I say just throw once can in per fill-up and you will be good to go.
