Bad Gas?

Hi All - I have a 2004 X5 which was running fine until this morning. When I started it the engine was shaking and then the engine stopped running. It did restart however it keeps shutting off - I can't get it out of the garage!

Do any of you experieneced this - could it be bad gas? Would dry gas help this?

Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

A first guess is water in the fuel, so a water remover (yeah dry gas) may well help.
