If in fact it's water, it will puddle on the bottom of the tank where it can be siphoned out. Isopropanol alcohol can be added to the gas also. This will absorb the water and mix it with the gas so it can be burnt up. Commonly known as gas line antifreeze in colder climates. I do however suspect your issue is more fuel pump related in some form rather then water in the gas. I could be wrong but once it's in the system and the engine quits, it generally won't start up again until system is purged.
