Fuel lines can get contaminated by particles in the gas that attract moisture. The moisture forms in the gastank when there are temperature differences (cold at night, hot during the day)and when there is a lot of moisture, it can get in your fuel line, and eventually in your engine. That'll stop your engine running if there is too much of it. What you can do (what they do with outboard engines on boats) is install a second fuel filter, which acts as a water trap, or you can drain your tank, or you can buy a fuel drying agent... ask your garage or car accessories shop. They can probably help. Good luck.
