Who has had good results with what products? I have used HEET before. What else have any of you used? Maybe a regular basis additive, maintenace type thing also?

Thanks

The best thing to do is get the tank drained. Any fuel with ethanol will remove any moisture from the rest of the fuel sysem. Any additives that do engine damage will void the warranty.

If I was sure of water in there, I'd use any product that has Isopropyl alcohol. Un less someone dumped a gallon of water in, I wouldn't worry anyway with the way cars are designed nowadays. Did you pull the fuel filter to confirm your suspicions?

Alcohol has a chemical bonding affinity for water. Heet works.
Cars normally using gasohol essentially have a continuous water removal for routine condensation.
My Sail Boat cook stove uses alcohol fuel. In the event of an uncontrolled fire, water :) will cool and quench the fire as well as bond with the alcohol to remove the fuel source of the fire.
