Missin/spittin/sputterin.....

ive got a 97 F350 and when i get to about the last 1/8th of a tank only on my front tank (i believe)....it starts to spit and sputter and i have no power. My first guess is water in the fuel system but i dont know. Anyone have any experience with this and if so...whats the solution. Ive already tried some diesel cleaner but it hasnt really helped. My next guess would be to completely drain my tanks. What say you?

Does it run fine above an eighth of a tank? If so is the pickup a problem? Maybe a hole in the tube and it starts suckin air. Never been inside the tank but makes sense to me.

Yes it runs fine above 1/8th and also it runs fine on the other tank all the way to empty. I havent really tried to dive into it yet tho.
