Re: water in the gas tank..

<font face="comic Sans MS">You could always pull the line that goes from the tank to the carb and then let it drain into a container. You could also find a way to pump out the tank from the top. Either way should work sufficiently, which one I'd choose would depend on which one is easier to do on your particular machine.</font>

Re: water in the gas tank..

There are little packages that are available for transport tanks that will suck the moisture out of a tank.

However, it would be pretty easy to takn the tank off and blow it out with a compressor.

While you may need to take off your carb and blow it out.
