Exclamation WATER IN FUEL

I just went to the local corner store and on my way back the wather in fuel light came on. I drained it intill it stopped dripping. Do you thing the dark blobs are the water or maybe the WD40 I had to use to open the vavle?

Great while trying to post this my internet craps out WTF

WD40 just mixes with fuel, can't even see it.

I guess I just a bad tank of fuel. I just filled up with 25 gal. And I've never had that much crap come out when I change filters.

I drain every fuel filter change. It lessens the fuel bath when taking off the filter bowl.
