I remember a story I read in grade school about two men and a kid out fishing on a big lake. Somehow the outboard gas got water in it and they were stranded with a big storm brewing. What to do, what to do?
Then the one guy remembered he was wearing his favorite chamois jacket.
It pained him greatly to tear it apart but they pulled the lining out of it and used the hide to filter the water out of the gas.
The outboard ran good then and they made it back to shore safely.
Nice story written from the kid's perspective with a tip about chamois that I've never forgotten.

I remember the story also. Wasn't it "Uncle Lem's Eggbeater"? About an outboard motor they called an eggbeater? I hadn't thought about it for a loong time. Anyone else remember?

while i hate ethanol in gas.. it will serve to help and hinder onthe water part.

a small amount of water will no longer glob up.. at least untill the soloution is saturated. the bad side is that you are now carrying alot of fuel that likes water. :(

It is a BAD process.
