I have a desiccate-filled sock called a Water Worm in my fuel tank to capture any moisture that makes it's way in. I check it when I refuel and it's generally empty. Today however, it was bulging at the seams! Full to the brim and more water in the bottom of the tank that it couldn't absorb. I then checked the worm in the garage heater oil tank and found the same.

It has been a wet summer around here. Torrential rain and high humidity even when not raining. If your summer has been similar, you might want to check your fuel supplies too.
