Hi and thanks for the help.
I filled my car with gas, and got about 9 miles down the road, lost power and the car died. I put a couple cans of Isopropel drying crap in the tank, but it still won't start. I'm guessing it's water in the gas, but I would like a second opinion. Compression is good, fuel pump is good, good spark. The car ran great before this. I disconnected the fuel line after the fuel filter and cranked it over, and it pushed fuel out of the line good. Incidentally, the car actually started and chugged a little with no fuel line connected.
There is also no check engine light on. Thanks,
Dan
