    Fuel/Water Separator Question

    Ok, this is my last stupid question of the year. On an 02 Runabout watercraft does the fuel/water separator truely do any good. The only reason I ask is this. If the crafts fuel system is seeled, good gas cap and what not, so that no water gets in that way. And your fuel cans are stored indoors and not rained on and even then they too are seeled then where is the water going to come from? Or is this just another obstical in the fuel system?

    Ok, Ok..... you don't have to keep laughing so hard... cut me just a little slack....

    It seems to be a good insurance policy against hydrolock. The boys told me water is in the gas you get from the station and from condensation in your tank too. I'd keep it, but replace all the fuel lines and fuel shut off valve. These get old and restrict your fuel flow causing you to run lean.
