Water sinks in gasoline. But with ethanol, it can form an emulsion. Using Epsom Salt, you can remove the emulsion after decanting the gasoline off the water.
Bake the Epsom Salt in an oven at 350 F for an hour, spread it out on a cookie sheet 1/2" thick. Let the salt cool, then use 1 tablespoon per gallon. This will restore the gasoline to a clear, bright liquid. Water in gasoline looks milky.
Once the gasoline is clear, decant again. The Epsom Salt will NOT dissolve in gasoline
5 gallon plastic buckets are great for this, white is the best color for decanting water, darker colors for decanting Epsom Salt.
Could you break the emulsion with more water and let it settle?
