Unhappy Starting Problems

Helpz mez please!! Ok so I've been having this problem for about the past two weeks now. Everytime I fill my tank with gas (no amount specified) and I try to start it up, it always has a hard time, it would either take a while to start or it will start then barely run on low idle then just shut off. After I would get it started it would start fine the next time I try. Any solutions to this?

water in the gas?
mine did something similar, try a can of that stuff that gets water out of the tank & see if that helps (its in a red & white can, cant remember the name)

Nope. Not in a while. Will Oil be a problem?

the bottle of stuff is called HEET or iso-HEET
its basically a form of Alcohol that binds to the water.

another thing to check would be the fuel filter. and stick to top tier gas.
