Water in the fuel

Anyone know of a good fuel drier/ water seperator additive I can use in a 6.0? I apparently got some bad fuel, and I am tired of crawling under the truck. Thanks in advance.

How about Stanadyne? It claims to be a demulsifier. Won't that trap it in your water separator/fuel filter?

Well, the water seperator on the truck was doing it's job, however I got tired of crawling under the truck every 10 miles to drain it,( why didn't ford leave it on top of the engine like the old 7.3?) so I got so Diesel Dry by CRC and it apparently worked, no light in over 40 miles now. Thanks for the reply.
