Suzuki 150 DF 4 stroke.

My friend has a 6.5 Humber with the above engine.
Last year he had an issue with water been in his tank and getting into the engine after it had passed through and external and internal water filter.
The mechanic who originally put it right said that there is probably wAter in the main tank which is an internal 100l stainless steel tank.
Does anyone know of a way I which to get the water out Part from the obvious?

Cheers.

Put this in Quicksilver Care System Advantage | Quicksilver and fit a good water separator. Make sure you fill the tank up all the time so condensation can't form and it dilutes the water more.

I also had a Quicksilver product that was like a small cage with hyrdophillic granules which soaked up water. Not sure they make them any more though.

Can't believe it has passed two separators. They will be replaced.
Cheers.
