The red bottle Isoheet seems to help displace some of the water that can get into gas. Or simply drain the gas tank and put fresh gasoline in it. You can always burn the drained gasoline in your car. Usually less than 1 gallon of gasoline per small engine gas tank so the small amount of water in it should not mess with your car engine

Heet works well with a bit of seafoam but a small mister funnel will work where you can siphon out the gas in the tank to filter it if back into a can if sits for a while too.

1978 I got caught in Newport RI on a Norton Commando and it was during the gas crisis and no stations open....I went to a drug store and bought 2 qts of rubbing alcohol, mixed it with the gas I had left, and made it most of the way home.
