Water fuel seporators are only good to a limit. If you have a tank load of bad fuel, water will get thru. The module on the frame rail "horizontal fuel conditioner" is junk IMHO. Check into Air Dog or FASS or a Raycor Water seporator in addition.
Also I have never drained a fuel system water seporator and got more than a few drops of water mixed with fuel out of it. Even in big 200 gal tanks I could see the water suspended in the fuel but never as much as you are stating.
The WIF light should have lit but then again that system is prone to issues.
Fuel pumps have filters on them but usually not to filter out water, just junk suspended in the fuel.
I feel for you and sorry to hear about what happened. I am getting ready to head out on a 4500 mile run out west... clean fuel is always a concern.
