How quickly can water destroy injectors?
I'm starting to think I may have obtained about 5-7 gallons of bad fuel that was used to top off the tank to full. The fuel was added and the following day I noticed that the truck began to start a little slower. Sometimes it fires right off and other times it seems to take about an extra second to start.
If the fuel has a decent amount of water, say some decent water and or other contamination in only 5-7 gallons of a full tank, could it wipe my injectors? Or at least do decent damage to them?
Or could I expect the problem to also clear up once the fuel has all been run through the engine, etc?
