possibly but what you normaly do is put the paste on a stick and swish it round the bottom of the tank. AS thats where the water is, if any.

Some seperators have a water alarm sensr built into them ,

usually dark blue water finding paste that you smear on the bottom end of the dipstick (the long thing that goes in the underground tank not the site manager) and it goes pale blue if there is water down there at the bottom of the tank. However many sites now have offset fillers, some with electronically controlled valves in them, that means the tank cannot be physically dipped without dismantling pipework. Strange things do happen-like the intermittent delivery of water I mentioned earlier, and that stopped the car within a mile from the filling station. Now they really did have a problem, 100 miles from home returning from holiday late at night with 3 very young kids in the car. But in general fuel is very reliable considering the amount of it we all use.
