Disconnect battery,remove the tank and drain it.The fuel pump is no good now too,replace it with new.After draining the tank,let it air dry for several hours so that ALL the moisture has dissipated.After reinstalling fuel tank with new pump,safely disconnect a fuel line up at the engine and place in a container.Add new clean gasoline,and cycle the ignition switch on and off so that the fuel pump will come on and flush the fuel lines of old contaminated gasoline and water.After a thorough flushing,replace the fuel filter with new.Also,add a small can of "Dry Gas" to the fuel tank as this will take any remaining moisture out of the tank.Good luck.

HOW DO I FIX THE CAR AFTER WATER WAS THROWN INTO THE FUEL TANK?


have to remove the gas/water in that is in the tank by removing the tank so you can turn it upside down and make sure every drop of the gas/water is out of the tank siphoning it out may leave some old gas/water in the bottom of tank then get rid of it let the tank dry out for a day and reattach it, then refill your tank with gas it may screw up for a little bit until the gas/water trapped in the fuel line is totally gone.
Go to you tube and look up "removing gas tank"

Water in gas tank


instead of expensive treatments, use a low cost method. for every 5 gallons of gas in the tank, add two ounces of regular rubbing alcohol. this is the main ingredient in all treatments. gas and water will not mix, but the alcohol attaches to the water and then the alcohol will attach to the gas, thus removing it from your tank and burning it. works well on all gasoline engines

Run out of gas and put some watery gas in the tank, it cut off 3mins later


Just plain silly. Remove gas tank, drain and dry. Replace fuel filter. Fill gas tank with 5 gallons of fresh gas. Add a bottle of water remover to tank then start and drive. Good luck.

Water in gas tank?


If it was alot of water, the injectors would need to be removed and the lines flushed. Spraying water into the cylinders could cause damage. The pump may be damaged too or have a shorter life due to the lack of lube.

Your best bet is to drop the tank and then dump out the water. Dropping the tank isn't that big of deal. Remove the filler hose and a couple vacuum hoses. Unplug the main fue pump harness. Remove the fuel lines. Support the tank with an appropriate jack. Remove the straps and drop the tank.

Water in gas tank


will need to completely drain tank, either remove tank from car or if has an external electric fuel pump you can disconnect fuel line between pump and engine, connect 12v battery to power supply of pump and pump gas out. make sure to run line to bucket to collect gas/water mix, remember water is heavier that gas so water will be on bottom of tank and first to pump out

Water in the gas tank


i would go up and get some HEAT they sell it at any auto store it treats up to 15 gallons of gas. HEAT takes the water and trapes it so that there isn't much water left into the tank and allowes the gas to run like it is supposed to..
