Will stp clean out water in a gas tank?

Stp does not really do enough to clean water out of a gastank, despite what you have been told. If you have water in the tank, you have a problem already. I don't rec. doing this, but 1 way to rid yourself of the water in the tank as a temporary fix would be straight out of bullrun. put a hole in the bottom of the tank, and drive until the car shuts off from no fuel, then plug the hole and refill. not sure how well this would work.

How can you get rid of gas?

with my experience the best way to get rid of gas naturally is to drink mint tea. any kind of mint tea will do, from peppermint tea to hot water with a few drops of mint extract., heck, you could probably soak a couple mint leaves in boiling water and drink it when it cools down. that is what has worked best for me, even better than gas-x or other medicines. !

What happens if water gets in your lawn mower gas tank?

Remove the Water from Gas Tank: Depending on how much water got into the tank you can use a product like HEET that is sold in the automotive section of most stores that helps remove water from fuel. If there was a large amount of water the best way to remove it is to unhook the gas line where it goes into the engine and let it drain out. I would suggest putting a additive like HEET in with the gas after you do this to help get rid of any left over water. A newer additive, Dave Liles Ethanol Fuel additive is an ethanol prodcut that might be better at absobing water than an isopropyl alcohol product like HEET. The Liles Ethonal is at Lowe's and other places. Depending on your location, some States sell reformulated gas which contains up to 10% ethanol. Using an alcohol based additive will increase the alcohol content and could damage your engine. It is best to drain the tank and refill with fresh gas, preferably treated with a fuel stabilizer, such as a Briggs brand.
