Your light came on (water droplets on dash?) and you drained the fuel filter with the lever in the back and the light is now off?

Unless the light comes back on rather quickly, I wouldn't worry about it...

It's actually not abnormal to collect a little bit of water in the filter housing/water separator (that's why it's there) and in not necessarily an indication of a problem.

Keep an eye on it though
