Default Fuel Quality

If you could get several thousand gallons of fuel, but it was possible there was 50 to 100+ gallons of water in the fuel would you still run it?

I would test it first, but chances are not worth damaging the engine.

Later this week we have a gas station that recently went through several thousand gallons of bad fuel, a state stop sell, and now we have to clean it up. On site test yesterday showed large amount of phase separation and particles.

Not in the boat. But back in the days of carbureted trucks we would run that in shop trucks. These days in modern stuff it's not worth the risk.

Add a can of dry gas (remember this in the pre ethanol days) and drive on trooper.
