- Sep 4, 2003I'd be careful with a fuel dryer you pour in you gas tank because
they may contain alcohol. My Merc 4 stroke owners manual has some
pretty stern language against putting any alcohol (ethanol
specifically) through the motor.
If you are getting water in your gas, it's usually pretty easy to see
it blobbing around the bottom of the tank. Keeping the fuel vent shut
when not actually using the motor will cut down on most of the water
getting into your tank. It comes in as the tank breathes during
I'd also change out the fuel filter before resorting to other extreme
measures. There should be one under the motor shroud somewhere.
Also, you motor was new wasn't it? This is a good time to exercise
your rights under warranty.
