Please reread my post ... especially the part that states that when the FUEL becomes saturated with water, the symptom of the full saturation becomes the condensation effect. With dehydrated fuels (as normally delivered from a refinery) will not appreciably 'condensate' until the fuel becomes saturated with water.
