      2 things.

      My boat with a V8 engine has a disposable fuel filter/separator.
      I replace it every year when I winterize whether it needs it or not.
      In a good year I run about 200 gallons of gas through it. That is
      much more than you will. Cheap insurance.

      Have you figured out how the water is getting into the gas?
      Prevention is as good as a cure.

      A filter/separator is a good idea in any event.
