Water in fuel? Starts and then dies after running for a short period of time.

Although my water in fuel light didn't come on in this video it has been coming on when doing this same thing. I had this happen about a month ago, put some sea foam in the tank and it worked itself out, so not sure if there was actually some moisture in the fuel. This time I have drained the fuel bowl and put sea foam in it, and it's still doing it. Could my water in fuel sensor be bad or I have heard there is a fuse to it as well. What else could it be? Only thing different is I have been adding 2 stroke oil to my fuel instead of optilube. Going camping Thursday and need to have it remedied ASAP.

Well I unhooked the water in fuel sensor and fuel heater that plug into the back of the fuel bowl and ran it for a few minutes then hooked it back up and seems to be running fine. We will see how it goes.
