All Questions on Flood Damage

Why did my car insurance rate change after I submitted a claim for flood damage?
Why did my car insurance suddenly go up? My car was deemed a total loss after a flood in my area. I've decided to get a new vehicle and I'm looking to get coverage again. When I called my insurance company, they quoted me $400 a month when I was previously paying $200. Other carriers are quoting me around the same price. Why did the rate increase?

How do I check my fuel system after a flood?
How do I know if there's water in my gas tank or fuel system? My neighborhood got hit pretty hard by a recent hurricane. Luckily, our building is okay and we didn't have any issues with our home. Our car, though, is a different story—the garage where we park was completely flooded. I know I need to check my fuel system for water to get a sense of how bad the damage is, but I've never had to do this before and I'm not sure where to start.
