What's in my fuel tank?
After much reading about rusty fuel tanks and no small amount of procrastination, I finally added a pre-filter to my fuel pump.
I was pleasantly surprised to find no rust at all, but did find this weird wad of shredded plastic in the tank exit banjo bolt. Obviously not fuel soluble, even in today's fuel, it looks like thick cellophane tape or the shredded cover of some item.
Then I poked up into the tank sump, and there's some item bouncing around above the banjo bolt outlet. Maybe a tank outlet filter assembly that came loose? Anyone been in a mid 80's tank that might know what dwells within?
