Water in fuel

Is there an additive or something I can use to help? I've had my sensor replaced and I still get the light at least once a month. I drain it, it comes back, I drain it again, etc, etc. Thanks

Remove the drain plug, remove the cap and filters.
You will need one full can of carb cleaner.
Bend the straw to about a 45 angle on the can of carb cleaner. Insert straw into drain hole.
Spray in every direction you can liberally. Redish brown junk should come out. I actually used 1-1/2 cans, and haven't seen the light ever since.
