Oz experiences .....
Here in the bush, many outlet's underground tanks are filled less often, 
resulting in water condensate settling in the tanks as they "breathe".
Very common to pick up a dirty fuel load. Many a stranded petrol vehicle 
has been revived purely by clearing out the water in the system.

Bush fix is to tip a cup full of methylated spirits in with every tank 
fill to emulsify any water deposit. This also keeps the fuel tank from 
rusting out!

Often vehicles filled to capacity will vent raw fuel in the heat of day.

South Oz.
