You know for sure that there was no ethanol/water in any of that fuel? A filter won't take that out.

Does anyone know when they get fuel if there is water or ethanol in it? You pay for non ethanol and you trust thatís what it is. No different than going to a pump in town and trusting thatís what it is.

No need to get pissy about it. And yes it is different. You've got it sitting in a barrel, above ground, exposed to the elements. It's not coming from a gas station in a much better controlled environment. Much more prone to condensation.

Yea, if your going to play the idiot, you won't much help here. I'd go through the fuel system, change the fuel filter and move #4 and 8 injectors to the 1 and 5 spots.

I've never seen one of those above ground tanks yet that didn't have some water in the bottom, unless it was just put up.
