Yes, Dry Gas is a brand name and it mixes alcohol with the water. The mixture burns instead of sputtering. It also keeps water in the fuel line from freezing. With the use of ethanol in the gas, I would guess that products like Dry Gas are less popular. Products like Sta-Bil are now commonly used to keep fuel fresh.

WET GAS, IS GAS THAT HAS BEEN CONTAMINATED, COMPROMISED BY ANY FLUID. YOU USUALLY HEAR THIS IN REGARDS TO BRAKE FLUD BEING WET. IT WOULD BE EASIER JUST TO PUT A NITROUS KIT ON IT.
