Q: Water in fuel tank

asked by on

There is water in the fuel tank.

A: Hello! If there is water in the fuel tank, ...

Hello! If there is water in the fuel tank, the only way to resolve it is to have the fuel tank drained and removed, so the fuel pump can be removed and the tank wiped down internally; you will want to remove as much water as possible. If the engine has been run and has started to misfire due to the water present in the fuel system, the fuel lines and fuel rail should be blown out to remove as much water as possible, and the spark plugs and fuel filter should be replaced. If the engine has not been run, it should suffice to drain the fuel tank and replace the fuel filter. Depending on where you live, this might be considered hazardous, (gas and water mix,) so a handling fee may be applied.
