You will have to drain the bad gas out,or you will continue to have this issue,saffle or drop filter and turn key on and drain it into a fuel jug,then replace with good gas and may be some gas treatment such as stp or lucas to get rid of the water left.


If changing out the gas doesn't do the trick, then the fuel pressure should be checked.

I checked the pressure n got nothing I'm goingvto change my fuel pump cause we can't here the fuel pump kick on cause the water that was mixed w the gas I believe it fried my pump grrr ty guys if that don't fix it I will check for other possible
