Foreman 500 EFI 2013 Water in gas tank?

Hi! I got a Foreman 500 EFI 2013. One morning it started to rev up and down, not much but it isnt normal. I filled the tank on a local gas station and it worked for the 2 minutes i used it then but the nxt morning it started to act up.
I have heard of others that have got water from that station.
I got out most of the petrol but i think there is more in the carb or filter but how does i get it out?

Welcome to the forum.


If you cleaned the tank out and it will start and run I'd just put fresh gas in it and run it. It will clear out pretty quickly.

Pull it off and point it away from you and turn the key on to. It should spray.

You tube or any other host site. You might need to replace the fuel filter if you haven't lately.

did you drain the tank or just add the additive??
you need to drain the tank, and add GOOD fuel, even some additive won;t hurt it?

if after this its still running poorly after a few minutes maybe a new spark plug

don't forget that you will have some OLD fuel still in the fuel pump and such, you will need to run that out to get things better
but that old fuel could have fouled your spark plus, thus why I said, try a new one and see?
