depends on how much water if its alot you can do one of two things drain the tank or add alot of dry gas more water more dry gas
You Can burn it in you gas tank! And all you emit from exhaust is water
The water sinks to the bottom. If your pick-up in near the bottom your engine will quit. You will need to drain the tank.
the tank will leak
pancake sryup is my gas tank, what do i do?

accidently put half cup bleach in gaqs tank instead of water tank on rv gas tank 3/4 full 30 gals? what will happen and what shoujld i do drain tank
I believe the water causes condensation in the gas,and could cause a problem with stalling. Provided it is an older model car.
You will likely need to drain the gas tank.
The only way to know for sure if a person has water in the gas tank is to drain the tank. Usually a car will sputter and die if there is water in the tank.
other than getting a bit of either water and or slug in your injectors it should be nothing should happen... get a carb/fuel injector cleaner in your gas tank fill up the tank with gas 89 octane or better and drive. I also put GAS antifreeze in at about half a tank and run it almost empty to clean my tank out before and after the winter which is when water can best get into your gas tank.
What will happen if water gets inside gas tank
possibly air in the gas tank. this happens sometimes if you keep pumping a little at a time, trying to get to an exact amount. It could also be water in the gas tank. this happens in cold weather sometimes. you can buy a bottle of drygas or something similar at a gas station. it only costs a few bucks and gets the water out. it could also be some kind of debris in the gas tank.
skipping stall no start
bubbles on top of gas in tank
Water is heavier than gasoline, it will pool at the lowest point of the fuel tank.
Have you tried using gas line antifreeze? That will help to remove some of the water in the gas. The best way to make certain all the water is out of the tank is to siphon the gas out, let the tank air out and re-fill the tank with gas from a station you know does not have water in the gas.
The water will settle to the bottom of the tank. The fuel pump is located on the bottom of the tank which means it will be picked up first and sent to the injectors. Water will not burn so the car will not start or will but run rough and die. You can by a gas drier or pay less and go to the drugstore and buy some alcohol.
The car will act like it is out of gas, sputter and eventually die, if there is enough water in the tank. If there is only a little bit, it will ususally sputter just a little before it evaporates the water. Still, no matter what happens with the water, you will need to replace the fuel filter, which is how the water got in there in the first place.
Yes, water is heavier than gas.
Remove the tank from the car.
