Okay, I guess I do have a few ideas about this, now that you mention it.. I am guessing "Dry Gas" is an alcohol additive that is used to (hopefully) make the water in the fuel flammable enough to be burned in the combustion chamber. It works well enough in a gasoline engine. I can't imagine that injecting water/alcohol is a good idea at all. Water really needs to be separated before it gets into the injection system. Even that fuel that you showed ought not be in the injection system.
The fuel systems on the 6.4l are very touchy when it comes to water. I have heard from people on here that didn't drain the filters enough, and had damage. Ford voided their warranty due to water in high pressure side of the system. I forget the exact circumstances, but suffice to say, there was water where it should not be, and Ford found it. Even if you flush the lines and tank and change the filters, there may still be water in the high pressure side. That's not pretty. I think the guy that I heard on here paid for a new high pressure pump, new injectors, new fuel rail, and other stuff. Major bad.
I hope it's not like that...
