    2006 15f - water in gas tank

    Hey People, went for an ocean ride last Friday and after about 30 minutes one of my 15f's quit running. after a long tow in and an hour or two of diagnosing we found water in the gas tank. it was enough that the fuel pump was picking it up and pumping it through the system. When i was checking for fuel pressure I disconnected the fuel line on top of the motor going into the injectors and dumped it in a jar. The water was obvious, the jar was half gas/half water.

    My question to you is, "how does that much water get into the tank?" I'm having a hard time believing the gas station I've been going to for the last 10 years would suddenly have water coming out of the pumps. So I have to assume saltwater is getting into my tanks somehow.

    Both ski's had water in them. the one that broke down had around a half a gallon or more. the one that was still running had about a quart. Anyways, both ski's are running good again, but I still haven't figure out how that much water is getting in.

    Thoughts?

    Check that the fuel filler neck isn't cracked and that the fuel vent isn't bad.

    Follow up: Yup, the filler neck was cracked on both of my ski's. Now i have to go apologize to my sister for blaming her for not putting the cap on tight. Thanks Sean
